Sure, when people ask you what a parsnip is you'll still have to answer, "um, I think it's like a carrot?" But you'll know for sure that you've made amazing ice cream.

Fair warning: according to its creator, this ice cream REALLY tastes like celery. But if you've ever loved ants on a log, maybe toss on some peanut butter sauce and go to town?
