celeriac

Despite its prehistoric appearance, celeriac can be incorporated into refined dishes and has a delicate and savory taste. Whether in a soup, a couscous, in a salad, mashed or au gratin.

Celeriac is an excellent winter vegetable because it stores easily. Very good in salads or mashed potatoes, however, you have to be careful, because it does not support overcooking which makes it tasteless and sticky.

How to choose it

Choose celery that is small to medium in size, dense and heavy. If necessary, just tap lightly on the outside of the vegetable to check that it does not sound hollow. Larger, lighter specimens are often more stringy and have a slightly bitter taste. The skin of the celeriac should have a light, even color with no spots or bruises. 

Available from August to March.

Conservation

  • Refrigerator: Whole, unpeeled celeriac keeps very well. For optimal conservation, we recommend placing it in the vegetable drawer of the refrigerator and consuming it within 5 to 10 days. Once cut, however, celeriac oxidizes quickly. 

  • Freezer: To prolong conservation, celeriac can be blanched then placed in the freezer for several months. 

Trick

Good to know: the dried leaves can be used as herbs, such as parsley. They have a taste similar to the vegetable, but less pronounced (a slightly lemony and pungent nutty taste). Here is an example ofrecipe.
