Product Description

Firm to the touch and an even creamy white colour our parsnips have a nutty, sweet flavour when cooked but can also be eaten raw. Parsnips are a versatile vegetable that can accompany many favourite dishes. Boiled and mashed they can add a tasty twist to cottage pie.

Serving Suggestion
Roast with crushed garlic and thyme for a great seasoned side.

Country of Origin
We're committed to buying British. When parsnips are in season in the UK, we source from home. The rest of the year, when the British parsnip is out of season, we source from trusted overseas suppliers.

Portion Size
6 Portions based on FSA recommended 80g.

Product Size
Average size of 145mm & Average Diameter 50mm.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

very good lately

I must admit we stopped buying these as the quality really was shocking. But they have been on offer lately and they were great. Still needed using with 2-3 days max but then I've never found any shop bought parsnips that keep well.

Soft soggy patches on all of them.

Awful quality

We have ordered these parsnips twice now and they have been terrible quality both times. I should have requested a refund as they were brown and soggy. They are totally unusable. Very disappointing!

Poor quality

I wish I had read the other reviews as these were of very poor quality. When I unpacked my shopping I found the tops of the parsnips were brown and going 'soggy'. I had to go and purchase some more from my local supermarket. It is impossible to check all products before the driver goes and so I contacted customer services who refunded me. I think Ocado are a little 'sneaky' with the 'life' of products - they guarantee three days for these parsnips - but I received these on Thursday night and the date on them was Saturday - not really 'three days'. I think they delivery day should not be counted!
