Anyone have an idea where, or even if, these are available to buy around here?

Thanks

Chirivía.....try the guy at the Tues. market at La Huerta, who sells vegetables, a little to the left as you walk in the main entrance. He said he is trying grow some.  A week ago, he had some really nice nabos (turnips). I told him I would bring him back some parsnip seeds from Ireland on my next trip over.
Stay away from those long white roots that Pancho/Super Lake sometimes has and he thinks that they are parsnips. They are some kind of Japanese radish.
The only other parsnips I have found (occasionally) were at the Mega opposite Galerias in Guad., but they were pretty sorry.

Pancho probably has daikon. A beef stew with cubed daikon like the chinese make is great.

The guy I mentioned in the earlier post had chirivía (parsnips) at the Tues. market yesterday at La Huerta. Picked up 4 nice sized ones and they still had the fresh green tops so they were reciente.
Going to make a batch of parsnip-turnip-carrot mash with cabbage for a sort of colcannon.

That could be very tasty--or really awful. I can not decide which. Very Happy

For some reason the ones I bought at the Tuesday market are totally tasteless. Not worth the gas to cook them.

Parsnips really need to go through a freeze to bring out their flavor. They have to be grown in a northern climate to be at their best. Sigh.

I have read one can store them at around 30 - 32 degrees F for a week or two and that will do it.

I will try that but usually fruit or veggies that grow fast because of the warmer weather do not have any flavor so I wonder if putting them in the fridge after they are grown will do anything, I will have to try that , I sure hope it will help..
