    The taste of salsify is similar to white asparagus. And like asparagus thick stalks are the easiest to peel and have better flavour. Note: Wear disposable gloves to peel them.

    1. Put on disposable gloves because salsify will stain your hands. Brush salsify thoroughly under cold running water, then peel and drop into a bowl with cold water and lemon juice immediately so that the salsify retain their white colour and don't turn brown.
    2. Bring salted water with a little crumbled vegetagble stock cube to the boil. Add salsify and cook till they can be easily pierce with a knife, about 25 minutes. Drain and cut into diagonal slices.
    3. Melt butter in a frying pan and add salsify. Fry briefly whilst stirring so they are evenly coated. Add ham, season with salt and pepper and serve sprinkled with parsley.
