What in the World is Celeriac??

February 3, 2015

Celery root!



Celeriac is harvested in the late fall. This ugly duckling has a distinct, refreshing flavor reminiscent of a cross between celery and parsley.



The green stalks that sprout from the root aren't for snacking -- they're more pungent and not as crisp as regular celery -- but are wonderful simmered in soup or stock.



Celery root stores well at cool temperatures, so it's available throughout the winter. Some markets carry it year-round.



What to Look For:

Celery root is roughly globe-shaped, with a knobby, uneven surface. The outside is a mottled brown color and the interioris creamy white.



Choose firm celery root that feels heavy for its size, and avoid any that have soft spots.



How to Store:

Wrap celery root loosely and store in the producedrawer of the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
