Celeriac and Celery


Celeriac is pretty darn ugly, but has a unique taste, blending celery and parsley. It is the smooth (inside), ivory colored root of the plant. Peel it and add it raw to salads, cooked in soups and stews, boiled and mashed or even french fried!




This celery is a bit smaller and stronger flavored than what you find in the grocery store. It is best used in cooking, but you can still eat it raw (it is just a bit stringy).
