- Celeriac, also called celery root, is a variety of celery cultivated for its edible root.
- The top of celeriac looks very similar to the celery you are used to, but it's not the part you eat.
- The part you eat, the bulbous root, looks like a brown mess!
- Simply cut a chunk off, then cut off the brownish outside layer before use. The very center of the root ball may be a bit tough or woody.
- It tastes just like celery but with the texture of a root vegetable!
- It stores for up to 8 months (sometimes longer!) in your refrigerator. Use it all winter!
- You can pretty much use celeriac any time you would usually use celery- in a pot pie or in a soup. Just remember the texture is different and it does take a little longer to soften than celery.
- You can even eat it raw added to a tuna sandwich or in a slaw or salad. Just grate it!
- It is delicious just diced and roasted along with beets, potatoes, carrots, winter squash and any other fall/winter veggies!
