 Parsnips are an odd looking vegetable that are strong tasting and oddly sweet. They are a great source of fiber, folate, and phenolic acids which are good for your immune system. Healing substance like dietary fiber are contained in parsnips. They have soluble fiber which becomes gel like in the digestive system. This helps the intestine from absorbing fat and cholesterol from foods. It also dilutes bile acids in the intestines. In many studies it has been shown that the more fiber you eat the better your systems work. It can also help curb the blood sugar swings that occur with diabetes.  

 If you decide to eat parsnips you can eat a small serving and get your daily source of fiber, folate, and potassium which is great for your blood flow. Along with celery and carrots are members of the umbellifarae family. They contain phenolic acids which can attach themselves to potential cancer causing agents. Research is still new in this area but you can still enjoy the fiber and folate they contain.

 Before you store them you need to trim the greens from the top. This is important so the stems don't pull nutrients from the parsnip. They should be stored in a cool place or in the refrigerator. Keeping them cold will keep them from drying out and going bad. It is important that you only buy store parsnips since they are milder then the ones growing in the wilds. They will last a couple weeks if stored in the fridge in a loosely closed plastic bag. The longer you store them the sweeter they get.

 You should cook them unpeeled so you do not cook away all the good nutrients in them. After cooking you can let them cool and peel. It is best to buy smaller parsnips as they will be sweeter to taste. Smaller ones have a better flavor and texture. One of the best ways to eat them is to boil them like potatoes. Let them cool and peel. Put the parsnips in a bowl and mass the up and eat with sour cream, lite salt, and cooking liquid to make them smooth and creamy.
