Celeriac has a unique flavour and is very refreshing even when raw. The flesh is creamy-white and firm but not as firm in texture as carrots.
To prepare celeriac, peel and cut into slices or chunks. Alternatively, grate the peeled root for use in salads or stir fries. Celeriac can be used either raw or lightly cooked in salads. Cook until soft and tender either by boiling, steaming or stir-frying. Celeriac is often mashed and served as is or mashed with other root vegetables. It can also be sliced into batons and fried, or sliced into wedges, brushed with olive oil and baked in the oven.
