Extra sweet from being in the ground all winter
*Back in the day, Parsnips were never dug in the fall,
they stayed in the ground all winter and were dug first thing in the Spring.
Just as Sugaring was ending, Parsnips were the first vegetable to come out of the garden.
To survive the frozen ground in the winter, Parsnips convert their starch to sugar,
which acts as an anti-freeze. Freshly dug in the spring they are incredibly sweet!
