Is there anything more amazing than chippies? yep, when they are purple and made from parsnips! Rose has turned one of those ‘not-so-pretty’ veggies into a rainbow masterpiece!

Oddly parsnips were originally thought of a veggie that can relieve tooth pain – while they may not help tooth pain, they are rich in Vitamin C and a delicious source of fibre. They are also sweet which make for a nice afternoon snack.
