Rooting around for winter inspiration

Looking for something new and different in this season of winter greens and the usual root vegetables, may I offer a word of advice: salsify! Which, as UK Guardian writer (who has one of those oh-so-British sounding names) Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall says in this article in the UKG: "appear at a time when we're all wondering what else we could possibly do with a parsnip or how to reinvent the cabbage." I myself have never cooked with salsify, but after reading the article and the accompanying recipes, rest assured his salsify fritters will soon be gracing my table. Hm, winter suddenly seems much more interesting.....
