Winter and vegetables

Why is it that Brussels sprouts and parsnips don't taste right until there has been a frost? Mind you after the winter we have so far I am amazed that SWMBO can still go out in the garden and get leeks, Brussels and parsnips and that they haven't been blown to pieces by the excessive frosts.

Today has been glorious so far, bright sunshine and not too cold a wind, but the ground is still in permafrost so how she has managed to hack parsnips out is beyond me. So looking forward to a roast dinner this evening; beef with all the trimmings yum yum, or should that be nom nom?
