Pretty, isn't it? No, not really. But it is delicious.
Celeriac is also known as Celery Root and it tastes of raw celery
with that tang you often get at the back of the throat
from eating a stalk of raw celery.
This beauty is worth looking for. When you find it,
be sure that it is heavy for it's size and firm.
You don't want one that looks dried out.
This evening I made it into a celery root / potato mash
with a bit of butter, milk and salt.
This is the inside. It is often a bit "pithy" in the center but still delish.
Looks almost like a brain with a stem doesn't it?
Maybe it makes you smarter . . .
Peeled and ready to dice . . .
Diced with an equal-ish amount of potatoes.
Follow your favorite mashed potato recipe and
enjoy the slightly tangy, earthy flavor of this delightful vegetable.
I guarantee that none but your foodie-est friends will be
able to tell what you've included to make this mash so amazing!
I apologize here as I missed a photo of the final dish -
it was inhaled for dinner with pulled pork and broccoli.
Mashed celery root and potatoes looks amazingly like
mashed potatoes without celery root.
If anyone desires a photo of mashed potatoes for comparison,
just leave a comment and I will get one posted for you right away.
Peace out, ya'll!!
