Celery root's roughly globular swollen root is often muddied, gnarled and full of wild offshoots. Underneath the root's burly exterior is a crisp, apple-like textured bright white flesh. The firm juicy flesh has a mild herbaceous quality with obvious celery-like undertones.
Celery root is available year-round with a peak season during the winter.
Celery root, also known as 'Celeriac', is a celery variety grown for its underground tuber versus its green leafy stalks. Botanically known as Apium graveolens var. Rapaceum, it is a member of the parsley family.
Celery root is an excellent source of dietary fiber and potassium. It is also contains significant amounts of vitamins C and B6.
Once you have peeled its rough skin, before cooking, prepare in a milk bath with lemon or other citric acid to preserve its bright white color. Celeriac can be a perfect non-starch substitute for potatoes in a meal, and can be prepared in a similar way.
The vegetable's most classic employment is in the cold French salad "celerie remoulade," in which the root is peeled, grated, cooked in lemon juice and milk, or alternatively blanched briefly in acidic water. It is then customarily served with a dijon-style mayonnaise.
One of the oldest root vegetables in recorded history, cultivated Celeriac originates from wild Celery (var. graveolens). Celery root first achieved culinary importance during the middle ages. It is considered difficult to grow and is similar to the rutabaga. It has an extremely long growing season, maturing in roughly 120 days, allowing generally for one crop per year.
