The Skirret (Sium sisarum Apiaceae), is a root vegetable.
The woody core is inedible, and should be removed before cooking because it is difficult to remove after.
The skirret is of Chinese origin, and has been grown in Europe since around 1500.

This hardy perennial provides a cluster of knobby, sweet tasting roots in the autumn and winter, from which grow rosettes of feathery leaves.
Skirret will overwinter in most regions, but the best roots are the young ones taken from the first growing season.

 The Masonic Skirret
It is an implement which acts upon a center-pin, whence a line is drawn, chalked, and struck to mark out the ground for the foundation of the intended structure.
What makes the skirret so special is that it is used before the foundation of a building is laid; and, therefore, the skirret is generally used before the other working tools.
Initial use of the skirret enables changes to be made to the mark rather than, later, to change a finished foundation of stone or concrete.

Skirret is a Sium species, a member of the Umbelliferae, the carrot and parsley family, a species not known for dust-like seeds -- I grew some years ago, and don't remember the seeds, but also don't remember they were particularly small.
What I do remember most about the skirret was the sweet flavor of the roots and that wretchedly fibrous core that had to be removed.
There was a lot of variation from plant to plant in sweetness and size of the core...

SKIRRET, known botanically as Sium Sisarum (natural order Umbelliferae), a fleshy-rooted perennial, the roots of which are boiled, and afterwards served up like salsify.
It requires a free, deep and much enriched soil, and is generally raised from seeds, which should be sown in drills a foot apart about the end of March, the bed being well-watered in dry weather.

I am finding them particularly useful sources of information on ember roasting — a techinque that seems to have been common — but was largely outside the interest of cookbook authors.
Thomas Muffett’s work, a combination of medical and culinary text has a wonderful entry on skirrets in which roasting “four or five together in a wet paper under embers” is one of the suggested cooking methods.
Ash baking is a cooking method of poverty, and as such is little documented.

In modern times, carrots are orange, but during medieval times, was (I believe) known to most people in antiquity as a white vegetable (like a turnip, but tasting like a carrot) but also (less common?) red, reddish fl, orange, yellow and various other shadings were mentioned, especially in the late medieval period.
Various other medieval names exist for carrots, or that include carrots, eg skirret (water parsnip), pasternakes (carrots or parsnip).
Carrots were eaten raw or cooked in medieval times.

The Greeks called the carrot "Philtron" and used it as a love medicine to make men more ardent and women more yielding.
The Carrot is mentioned by Greek and Latin writers under various names however it was not always distinguished from the Parsnip and Skirret, which are closely allied to it.
The name Pastinace was used for both at the time of Pliny the Elder and is based on the verb pastinare - to dig up.
