Parsley Root
Also called Hamburg Parsley and Turnip-Rooted Parsley

THE BASICS
This parsley subspecies is grown for its beige, carrotlike root, which tastes like a carrot-celery cross. It's used in parts of Europe in soups, stews and simply as a vegetable.

Parsnips

THE BASICS
Europeans brought the parsnip to the United States in the early 1600s. Fresh parsnips are available year-round with the peak period during fall and winter; the first frost of the year converts the parsnip's starch to sugar and gives it a pleasantly sweet flavor. Look for small to medium, well-shaped roots and refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to 2 weeks.

Should we remove the cores from parnips? Probably

See also Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)

THE BASICS
Along with beans, lentils, peanut and soybeans, peas are legumes. The common garden pea (often just labeled 'peas') are best purchased frozen, unless they can be picked and consumed within 2 to 3 days. Snow peas are almost translucent with thin, crisp pods with tiny tender seeds. Both tips of a snow pea should be pinched off just before using. Sugar snap peas are a cross between English Peas and Snow Peas.

Keep sugar snap peas on hand for healthful snack attacks
