I love cooking with parsnips. They have a unique flavor to me. I will make a pork stew using them along with carrots and onions.

Keep on track

Such a shame that the stalks and leaves of parsnips are toxic, mine are absolutely beautiful.

sorry your parsnips didn't do well.

Just found my answer. DON'T EAT THE STALKS AND LEAVES OF PARSNIPS.

"In some cases, however, the leaves are potentially poisonous, such as parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) leaves, which may cause reactions with skin such as blistering. Turnip (Brassica rapa) leaves are not poisonous."

Thanks WhiteAngel4, but what can I do with the stalks and leaves. Are they worth cooking? What do you put them in?

My parsnips produced horrible knobs as a vegetable. But the stalks and leaves look beautiful. What can I use them for?
