Thank-you so much for your support this 2020 season, Ottawa-Gatineau! All of our CSA Memberships and Plant Sale are completely sold out. We are working hard to bring you a Fall Share Basket option so there's still a chance to join our farm-ily and support local, small-scale farming. Sign-up for our newsletter to be notified when our Fall Share becomes available.

Parsnip

About Me: Parsnips aren’t the most loved, but at Catena Farm we really enjoy them when the cool fall season hits. They have a nutty-sweet taste and a tender-hearty texture that is all their own. Parsnips are a root vegetable and due to a very long growing season, parsnips are not available until late fall, and improve in sweetness after exposure to frost. These guys are loaded with vitamin C and dietary fibre. Parsnips are great in stews, roasted, or made into fries with a tasty dip.

To store: Trim off parsnip tops and place, unwashed, in a mesh bag, or paper towel, and then place inside a bag, or container inside your fridge crisper. They will keep for several weeks. Parsnips store very well in root cellar conditions as well.
