A & M - sorry, not your best video. Your chosen parsnip was old - long tail, meaning that is was harvested at the end of the growing season. Not smooth (too wrinkly, denotes lack of moisture). One should never have to core out a fresh root vegetable, just as one should never have to remove the green sprout from a clove of garlic (unless it's old).
This video was shot, what, five months ago? We have April now, which means that this was done in Nov/Dec. You need a new produce purveyor, if that's what they sold you.
Very sorry, as the two of you usually do a bang-up job. Small things aside, keep the info flowing!
