Italian Celeriac

HK$60

Estimated price per piece

Though not aethetically pleasing to the eye, the celeriac has a mild, celery-like flavor with a starchy, rather potato-like texture. What it lacks for in appearance is most certainly made up for in taste. As a root vegetable, it stores well, making it a real treat for local eaters in autumn and winter.

Since this is a root vegetable, it stores well and for an amazingly long time if it is kept cool. Having spent most of its life underground, it also enjoys the dark. Kept loosely wrapped in plastic in the fridge it will last up to several weeks, even longer if it was freshly harvested.

The celeriac needs to be peeled - and be aggressive when you do it. Remove all of the slightly hairy brown exterior to reveal the creamy, solid flesh inside. The celeriac is most classically and commonly used shredded and cooked in a simple celery root salad. It is also delicious added to soups and stews. Add celeriac to mashed potatoes for a great twist.

Like all root vegetables, celeriac is quite versatile, taking well to roasting, braising, or simmering.
