Celery Root (Celeriac)

Storage: Keep loosely wrapped in plastic in the fridge and it will last up to several weeks, even longer if freshly harvested.

Preparation: Peel aggressively to remove all of the slightly hairy brown exterior to reveal the creamy, solid flesh inside

Taste: A mild, celery-like flavor with a starchy, rather potato-like texture

Nutritional Benefits: Celeriac is a wonderful source of dietary fiber. It is also is rich in vitamins A (for eye health), C (for immunity), K (to help the body heal) and E, which is a powerful, fat-soluble antioxidant that helps protect cell membranes against damage caused by free radicals and prevents the oxidation of LDL cholesterol.
