Salsify

Hi everyone,

Salsify – I love that word. It just rolls around your tongue and comes out sounding like music. Talk about stereotyping, immediately exotic comes to mind. This vegetable is far more popular in Europe than the U.S., which makes it even more interesting to me.

When we received our 2009 CSA brochure, salsify was on the list of vegetables they are testing this season. So, now I am curious if the flavor of salsify will sing as much as its name. Salisfy comes in two colors – black or white and looks like a carrot or parsnip, but even skinnier. Apparently not only are they tasty, they have a beautiful flower to adorn your vegetable garden as it grows.
