Description

With a delicate, distinctive flavour likened to oysters and asparagus, these Slender, parsnip like roots with white skin and flesh are also known as purple or common salsify, oyster plant, vegetable oyster, Jerusalem star] goatsbeard or simply salsify. Salsify can be used in a similar way to any other root vegetable – add it to soups and stews, or serve it mashed. Alternatively, try adding cooked, grated, delicately flavoured salsify to salads. It’s easier to peel salsify after it’s been boiled.
