Again, in my CSA. This time three massive roots.

Last week I made soup (with cashew cream), and it was good! I don't like it raw though. Can I use it in curries, or will it taste like celery (I hate celery). Also, how do I peel the gross hairy parts off without wasting half of the root?

Celeriac is great! It is hard to say whether or not it will taste too much like celery for you in a curry... but I bet I'd eat it.

This is the best technique I have come across for prepping celeriac:

You can definitely use it in a curry. In fact, I am going to try that myself! I find that celeriac has a very mild flavour once cooked. Much milder than celery. I bet it's delicious!

I've only made the hashbrowns so far but they were awesome.

I like using cubed celeriac in all kinds of stews and casseroles, especially tomato-based ones. I often use it instead of celery in recipes like jambalaya, gumbo, lentil soup, lasagna etc.

Mmmm, I love celeriac! Have you tried braising it? Brown cubes in some oil with some onion, then throw some vegetable stock, white wine, or a mix of the two on it and cover, stirring occasionally. When the celeriac cubes are tender, uncover and cook away most of the liquid. Sprinkle with minced fresh herbs, salt and pepper, and serve.

That sounds yummy! I got more this week, so I'll try that. I like anything braised in wine.

Just be careful. If you go with all white wine it can get a little too sour. It's a good idea to cut it with some veg stock or be ready to sweeten up a bit at the end, or add something sweet like carrots or apples to begin with. Also, it can take longer than you think it will to cook.

Oh, I love celeriac. Have you been making the Tal Ronnen soup with Granny Smith apples? It's so delicious that when I make it I just stand by the pot eating bites and saying "Mmm, mmm." Marcella Hazan has my favorite recipe. She makes a mash of it with a few tablespoons of black olives or olive tapenade. Try it!

I was once at a permaculture meetup and we sang a song about celeriac:

I am a celeriac
I've got warts and scales upon my back
if you are a coeliac
you can eat me without having an allergic attack

so yeah, hope that helps!

Thinly sliced & caramelised with onions. Either a a pizza topping, or in a casserole dish, topped with bechamel sauce & seasoned breadcrumbs & baked until golden. Yum!

I think I'll use hard cider! It seems that apples and celeriac are a natural pairing, and I have way too many free bottles of cider awaiting culinary usage.

There is a recipe in Plenty that sounds very good and also uses up 1 1/2 pounds of celeriac. It is a salad of celeriac, lentils, hazelnuts and mint. Here is the recipe from a blog where the measuremens are converted into cups.

Don't let these people fool you, it's filth. It is just celery's slightly less odorous little (or big) brother. Still dirty. Chuck it or feed it to someone with no taste buds.

those open faced sandwiches with celeriac sauce from Inspired Vegan totally knocked our SOCKS OFF. It doesn't actually use up a ton of celeriac, but still, you won't be sorry.

Yes! And if you don't have the book, the recipe is available online.

I know you say you don't like it raw, but have you tried it grated with a mustardy salad dressing? That's my faaaave.

I have made that and it is what I came here to suggest.

I also like it halved with mashed potato and as half the layers in a potato gratin.
