About parsley root

Parsley root is a carrot-shaped vegetable that usually grows between 2 and 6 inches long. Its color is typically beige-white, and it frequently sprouts double-rooted. Its aromatic foliage is edible, which is why grocers often sell it with the tops attached.

Its Italian parsley-like leaves are dark green, finely cut, and flat. Don't confuse these greens with the kind you might grow in a garden. Those more popular varieties of parsley are the ones commonly used to flavor cuisine.

Also called Hamburg, Dutch, and turnip-rooted parsley, this particular variety looks a lot like a parsnip. However, parsnips are creamier in color and have a sweeter, more earthy flavor. This large taproot is a member of the carrot family and has a bold flavor profile that's rather unique. It combines the essence of celery, parsley, and carrot on your tongue.

Often overlooked in America, cooks across Europe use this popular root in many dishes. It provides plenty of nutrients too. A 3.5-ounce serving provides a variety of vitamins and minerals such as:
  • Vitamin C.
  • Vitamin B9 (folate).
  • Potassium.
  • Magnesium.
  • Zinc.
  • Phosphorus.
  • Iron.

FAQs About Parsley Root

The greens are best eaten within a couple of days and will become soft and discolored when it's time to toss them out. The roots, however, can be stored in a cool place for several weeks with a bit of tender loving care. If it starts to go flabby, not all is lost. These yummy tubers can still be pureed or baked into a delicious meal.

Like most roots, parsley produces ethylene as it matures. This gas can make it appear withered or feel slimy. If you spot any mold, they've definitely gone bad. Don't try to cut off the moldy spots, as its roots travel surprisingly deep into the parsley. When in doubt, give them the smell test. Any unpleasant odors are a sure indicator that it's time to order some more fresh parsley root.

Parsley root will store well for a week or two if you use these tips:
  • Before storing it in the fridge, sprinkle cut areas with lemon juice to prevent discoloration.
  • Wrap it in a paper towel to absorb any moisture.
  • Store the roots and greens separately in the fridge using a breathable reusable produce bag.
  • You can also dry parsley root in the oven and store it in a dark, airtight container. When done properly, it may keep over the season, but check regularly for signs of mold or rot.
