Can you help us? We need to identify this product. We bought it at our local Harris Teeter under the 'lemongrass' sign. But now think we maybe wrong. It's about the texture of a carrot... could it be an alternative carrot? It might be a little softer than a carrot actually. hmm... It has a faint lemongrass scent but it could be something else. It cost about $2.50 (YIKES!!!) for this one piece. We better put it to good use (once we know what that is).
*** thanks to everyone who commented. The conculsion is YES this is a parsnip (duh me.). Question: what do parsnips smell like? Better question: what does lemongrass look/smell like? ***
