A new, good supplier?

These were smallish, very fresh, sweet, beautifully clean and with no nasty fuzzy buff edges to the veg when you peeled them. Perhaps Ocado listens when dud suppliers send brown or over the hill produce!

bad quality

The whole bag had brown marks running through them, I threw the lot in the bin.

Not enjoyable to eat

I have purchased these twice now and on both occasions I have been disappointed. The flavour is very weak and not nice. I definitely would not recommend and won't buy again.

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.


Five-Root Soup with Bacon

Five-Root Soup with Bacon

The key to success with this soup is to cut the root vegetables small and keep the pieces all about the same size so they cook evenly. It helps to be in a chopping mood when you set about this one. If you don’t have any Cheddar to hand, or you want to go easy on the cheese, you can finish the soup with a trickle of rapeseed or olive oil instead. You could also leave out the bacon to make a vegetarian version.

Parsnip Chip Sticks

Parsnip Chip Sticks

These are a healthy alternative to crisps and dips, lovely to nibble when you come home from school or work and equally good to serve for nibbles before a dinner party. You can use ground coriander and cumin but by dry frying and pounding the seeds you achieve a much better flavour and aroma. Children can mix up the yoghurt dip and pound the cumin and coriander seeds and have fun tossing the parsnips in the spice mix.
