What's in Season in Winter
Parsnips are one of my favorite winter root vegetables. Roasted with honey and rosemary, they serve as a heartier staple than potatoes for me, and are nutritional with plenty of fiber, vitamin C, B-vitamins and mineral content. A member of the taproot family and kin to carrots, they’re also sweet. And I like a sweet root in winter. See our recipe for Beef Stew with Parsnips and other root vegetable dishes.
Local staple crops, such as Shagbark’s Beans and Stone Ground Whole Flours (see page XX for our story about one of the grain farmers who supplies Shagbark’s organic grains).
