Celeriac or Celery Root

About: Celeriac is a member of the celery family and is grown as a root vegetable. Unlike other root vegetables, celeriac is very low in starch. Celeriac can be eaten raw or cooked and used on its own or as a flavoring in soups and stews. Its flavor is often described as a combination of celery and parsley with nutty undertones.

Dip raw, cut celeriac in lemon water. Like apples, celeriac browns when exposed to air for prolonged periods of time.
