Information on juicing Parsnip

Parsnips are often overlooked when it comes to juicing and they really shouldn't be. Make sure to make the most of this winter vegetable when it is season. Parsnip juice is a sweet juice (along the same lines as carrot juice) but has its own distinctive taste. By itself the sweetness of parsnip juice can be a bit full on so try mixing it with other juices such as apples, spinach and celery.

When selecting parsnips for juicing look for produce that is cream in colour, firm to the touch and of good weight. Avoid parsnips that have been left in the ground for too long as their fibres become woody rather than succulent.

If your parsnips are organic then simply remove any attached soil, rinse the parsnips and remove the top and the tail. Cut the parsnip into small pieces that are suitable for feeding into your juicers feeding chamber. If your parsnips are not organic then you may want to peel them first as you would carrots.

The health benefits of parsnips are again under rated. Parsnip juice contains far less calories than Carrot Juice and so is a valuable ingredient in juice recipes that aim to help weight loss. Parsnips are a good source of Folic acid, potassium, sulphur and vitamin C. This makes parsnip juice a valuable ally in the quest for healthy skin. Parsnip has been associated with improving bronchial tube functioning in the lungs and so may be of benefit to those who suffer from asthma.

If you haven't already tried juicing parsnip then give it a go, it will provide you with another string to your juicing recipe bow!
