Care & Storage:
Celeriac can be used all at once, or you can cut off a little at a time and store the remainder (up to several weeks) wrapped in the fridge. Pull out and add to this dish or that over time. Cut off the knobby outer part with a knife and use the solid center for great celery flavor with no strings attached!
Easy Prep Ideas:
Also known as celery root, celeriac is very popular in Europe, where our common stalk-type celery is rarely used. It has a great celery flavor, keeps for a long time, and is highly versatile, as it can be used raw or cooked in a variety of ways. Grate and mix into salads, or slice celeriac sticks. Boil and mash with potatoes, add to soups and stews, or roast them on their own or as a flavorful addition to a roasted vegetable medley. Add slices or cubes to your stir fry, slice thinly onto a sandwich, experiment!
