Hi all,what is the best way to store carrots and parsnips?
I leave parsnips in the ground and dig them up when needed, but both can be put in a bucket etc of slightly damp sand or peat, kept in an unheated covered place like a shed or garage. If the container is left outside, cover it with polythene to keep the rain out.
Freezing is a good way. I have done both this way and find it excellent.
Like Bob, I leave parsnips in the ground. They're all the sweeter after a freeze. Ditto his thoughts on carrots.
