Digging Deep on Root Vegetables
Digging Deep on Root Vegetables
We're digging deep this week as we take a look at some of our favorite root veggies! Root Veggies acquire tons of flavor and nutrients from the earth surrounding them as they grow and mature. From Radishes to Rutabagas, and Yams to Yucca Roots, Ingardia Bros. carries a wide variety of root veggies! Take a look at a few of our favorites:
Parsnips  
Parsnips have been cultivated since ancient Roman times. These root vegetables are often mistaken for white carrots, but they have a distinct flavor. As parsnips mature in the ground, pulling nutrients from the earth, they begin to develop a sweeter flavor. They're high in vitamins and minerals - especially potassium.
Parsnips | 20lbs - $32.67 | 5lbs - $9.15
Carrots 
Crisp and earthy, with a subtle sweetness, carrots are highly versatile. At Ingardia Bros., we carry a wide variety of carrots from standard, jumbo carrots perfect for juicing to the vibrant-colored rainbow carrots that steal the show as they take center stage on the plate. 

Jumbo Carrots | 25lbs | $12.67
Rainbow Mix | 25lbs | $24.00
Baby Carrots with Tops | 24ct | $16.67
Beets 
Ingardia Bros carries a variety of beets - in all sizes and colors. These garden gems are prized for their sweet earthy flavor. They contain the highest natural sugar content of all vegetables. Their natural sweetness and vibrant color make them a great stand-out ingredient in seasonal dishes of all kinds.
Gold /  No Tops | 25lbs - $24.67 | 5lbs - $6.17
Red / No Top | 25lbs - $13.33 | 5lbs - $4.17

Yucca Root  
Delicious and versatile, this healthy desert root can be used in a variety of ways. Yucca Roots have a flavor similar to that of potatoes and a stringy consistency like a pumpkin. Yucca Roots are rich in vitamins and minerals, containing a concentrated dose of Vitamin C, and are full of antioxidants that neutralize free radicals.
Yucca Root | 10lbs | $12.10
Sweet Potato & Yams
While much of the confusion stems from these names being used interchangeably in U.S. markets and in recipes, sweet potatoes and yams are actually two distinct and very different vegetables. Yams are starchy and dry, while sweet potatoes are tender and sweet.

Jewel Yams | 40lbs | $39.33
Jumbo Garnet Yams | 40lbs | $39.00
Medium Garnet Yams | 40lbs | $36.00
Jumbo Sweet Potatoes | 40lbs | $37.33
Celery Root 
Like all tuberous vegetables, celery root is highly versatile. Its mild flavor presents a great canvas for a variety of spices and sauces. Celery root is low in fat, low in carbs, and is especially high in vitamins B and K and nutrients like phosphorus.

Celery Root w/o Tops | 25lbs | $33.33
Celery Root w/ Tops | 12ct | $26.00
Radish 
Ranging in color from pale to vibrant red and deep purple, radishes are a tender and crisp root vegetable. Their flavor is mild, only slightly peppery with almond-sweet notes. Radishes vary in color and can range in from the size of a golf ball to soft ball, and are delicious in any form - fresh, cooked, pickled. 


Loose | 25lbs | $33.33
Watermelon | 5lbs | $12.51
French Breakfast | 24ct | $33.33
Korean Lobok | 40lbs | $25.33
Rutabaga, Turnip, & Salsify 
A once understated root vegetable, the turnip has recently found its way to some of the most popular restaurants across the United States. The rutabaga has a more mellow, golden appearance than turnips or potatoes, and when cooked, it turns sweet yet savory — like the richest golden potato you can imagine. Salsify is a more slender relative to the parsnip. It is also known as the 'oyster plant' due to its mild oyster flavor when cooked.

Rutabaga | 25lbs | $36.67
Turnip w/o Tops | 25lbs | $29.33  
Salsify | 2.2lbs | $8.46
