One of the lesser known root vegetables, salsify is also known as oyster plant because it tastes slightly of oysters. It has a beige-white skin and looks similar to a long carrot in shape.

Salsify can be used in a similar way to any other root vegetable - add it to soups and stews, or serve it mashed. Alternatively, try adding cooked, grated, delicately flavoured salsify to salads. Its easier to peel salsify after it's been boiled.
