As much as I love the concept of being a locavore, you couldn’t possibly get a healthy amount of nutrients during winter in New York as a locavore. So while I try to buy what I can from our local farmer’s market, I can’t live on just apples, potatoes, and parsnips. I do end up eating more of these in winter though. With just about three things available, you can’t afford to not use any one of them, and I realized that a few friends of mine are still not familiar with parsnip.
