The best way to trim an artichoke? Cut about an inch off the top, then rub the cut end with the cut side of a halved lemon to prevent browning. Break off the dry outer leaves near the stem, and snip off the spiky tips of the leaves with kitchen shears. Cook the artichoke, then chow down!

You probably have a grater for making wisps of zest, but it's also worth investing in a five-hole citrus zester. This gadget creates slightly longer strips, which are great for garnishes and anywhere you want a little more citrus flavor.

Get Fresh With Parsnips

Here's what you need to know about this often-overlooked root vegetable.

Buy: These off-white roots look similar to carrots, but they have a sweet, nutty flavor. When you're shopping, choose firm parsnips that are small to medium in size. Large ones can be tough and chewy.

Prep: Parsnips have thin skins, so just give them a good scrub and you're good to go. Cook them as you would carrots: roasted, boiled, steamed, or sautéed in a pan with some butter. They're also tasty in a mash. We're fans of a half-potato–half-parsnip mixture.

Store: Stash unwashed parsnips in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer. They'll keep for up to 2 weeks.
