Fun facts

  • Celeriac must be scrubbed, trimmed at the top and bottom, quartered, and then peeled before eating. 
  • Be sure to discard any spongy parts. 
  • Avoid overcooking celery root as it will go quickly from firm to mushy.
  • Celery root (celeriac) can be treated like turnips and rutabagas - grate, shred, or julienne and serve with salads, slaws, and your vegetable platters. 
  • Add cooked, quartered, celery roots in soups and stews add excellent flavor. 
  • Use celery root in your stuffing for a more complex taste and texture.
  • Before using celeriac, peel and soak it briefly in water with a little vinegar or lemon juice to prevent cut surfaces from darkening.
