Tips

  • How long do raw parsnips last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep raw parsnips refrigerated.
  • To maximize the shelf life of raw parsnips, refrigerate in plastic bag.
  • How long do raw parsnips last in the fridge? Properly stored, raw parsnips will typically last for 3 to 4 weeks in the refrigerator.
  • Can you freeze parsnips? Yes, to freeze: (1) Wash, peel and cut into 1/2-inch cubes; (2) Blanch (plunge into boiling water) for two minutes and chill quickly in ice cold water; (3) Drain off excess moisture, package in airtight containers or freezer bags and freeze immediately.
  • How long do parsnips last in the freezer? Properly stored, parsnips will maintain best quality in the freezer for about 12 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only – parsnips that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How to tell if raw parsnips are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the raw parsnips: discard any raw parsnips that have an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the raw parsnips.
