      the worthless word for the day is: pastinaceous

      [obs. rare] (from L. pastinaca, parsnip)
      of the nature of or akin to the parsnip

      "Its root is carnous.. of a pastinaceous sapour."
      - Richard Tomlinson (1657)

      bonus words:
      carnous - fleshy, pulpy (of fruits or roots)
      sapour- flavor
