The ground has thawed in central Massachusetts and that can only mean one thing...it's time for spring dug parsnips!
Every fall, Winter Moon Farm harvests most of their parsnips so that we're able to enjoy them during the harsh New England winter, but Michael Docter always leaves a few rows of parsnips in the ground to "overwinter."
Once the snow covers the soil, the plants lose their shoots and leaves and the root begins to naturally convert its starches into sugars. In the spring, Michael pulls these super sweet and delicious parsnips from the cold, hard ground and brings them to share with the Boston Organics Community!
The organic rainbow carrots from Deep Root Organic Coop and the fresh cut rosemary from Happy Valley Organics' greenhouses add an extra splash of color to this week's Dogma Boxes.
Combine these goodies with the local spring dug parsnips, a knob of butter and a drizzle of honey and you've got yourself one delicious locally sourced dish.
