Look For

The roots should be black skinned with a creamy coloured interior. Select medium-sized roots that are smooth and firm. The leaves should be deeply veined and have wavy margins but salsify is often sold without the leaves.

To Store

Wrap salsify in a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

To Prepare

Scrub the root under cold running water, peel with a sharp knife and place in water with a little lemon juice, then cut into short lengths and simmer for half an hour until soft. Drain, then sauté.
