do you peel them before cooking them?

oh yes smile
new carrotts you can just scrub.

with parnips you are meant to take woody bit out of the middle

yes definitely but you can get non-peel carrots in Sainsbury with super-clean skin with no blobs on. Mine come all covered in soil so don't have a choice.

Seriously shock

I have never ever done that and my parsnips are fab (esp with honey on) smile

Its not as important with organic ones, but with non-organic root veg such as carrots, they recommend peeling 3mm off due to pesticide absorbtion.
