    Pronounced: SAL-sih-fee

    A white-fleshed root vegetable with grayish skin that resembles a carrot or parsnip in shape. Salsify can be up to 12 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide. Salsify is known as "poor man's oyster" for its mild oysterlike flavor. There are other varieties including one with a pale gold skin and another with a black skin (scorzonera). Although not common the U.S., it can be found in Spanish, Italian or Greek markets. Serve as a vegetable or use in savory pies, creamed soups, stews or side dishes.
