    Does anyone know what parsnips taste like?

    I read that you either love or hate the taste and one person described them as tasting like licking a basement floor :yikes

    I know, it makes me scared of buying them, LOL. I had to look up what they looked like online because I had no clue what they were or looked like.

    I think parsnips taste a lot like turnips. I love them with a little butter and salt. mmmmmmm.

    Funny .. we just had parsnips for the first time the other night. While at the Grocery store, Zachary asked what the white carrots were, I said Parsnips and he wanted to try them. They are bland, smell like carrots with a hint of sweet. I sauteed them in butter them topped it with shredded Moneterey Jack Cheese. I really liked it. I didn't think they tasted like turnips at all .. turnips, to me, have alot stronger taste. I love scalloped turnips ..YUMMY.
