I bought one.  The thing looks awful, but I just have a feeling I'll like it.  But how do you cook it?  Just boil?

I love rutubaga's.  For what it's worth.  I have no clue if it tastes similar or not.  I've steamed, boiled, roasted, slow cooked and even tried frying those once.  That last one didn't turn out, but I love it the other ways.

The safest route, I think, is just to peel, cut up and steam it. This way you can establish a reasonable cooking time and taste test it without messing up a whole meal if it happens that you don't like it. A good 'add in' for stews, I think.

I make coleslaw with it and also make pancakes with it.

Grate it in the food processor with an onion, add one egg and slight bit of flour.

Heat pan add some oil and make potato like pancakes with it, very yummy!

Go to the "Sweet Potatoes for Os" thread where we talked about this yesterday.
Go to your "Lamb pie" thread where I told about my shepherd's pie - maybe the day before.

By all means, slice and steam and sprinkle with olive oil. Excellent steamed / stir fried with artichoke hearts - and steamed / baked with sweet potatoes. Another option: steamed with green peas.

Do you make lamb stew? Try to add slices of celeriac and parsley root - yummi.

Once you have peeled it, it will look civilized.

ABNW: Do you like the flavor of celery?
You know what celery leaves do to a stock? Well, that's the general flavor of the root, but maybe a little "nuttier"? Subtler, too.

I find that the best way to START with celeriac is the "Mashed" route. Mix it with mashed potatoes, butter modified: Whoops - forgot to mention the cream and salt. That way you taste it in a "familiar" setting and can get a sense of what you want to do with it after that. I say half potatoes and half celeriac is a good start.

A traditional French appetizer is "céléri rémoulade": Raw julienned celeriac with a remoulade dressing. It marinates in it for a short time. It's very typical. You see it in France on many, many menus. Most gourmet cookbooks that include French cuisine will have a recipe for it; it'd also be easy to locate on the web.

Inspired by this thread, I'm steaming celeriac right now. The strong scent gives me the feeling that I'm invincible. It is a powerful veggie.

I'm making celery root soup tonight.  Onions sauteed in ghee, add cubed celery root and a bit of white wine, saute for 5 min or so, add homemade chicken broth, simmer til soft, then whiz up with the immersion blender.  Need to look in the Flavor Bible cookbook for a complimentry herb to top it with or a spice to add while cooking.

Depends what I'm making. I asked so that I'd get an idea of where you were going with the flavorings you said you'd investigate.

This is a good thread.  Thank you all.  I have yet to cook with whine.  Yes, I know, heresy.  I'm kind of nervous about it, because whine just doesn't make me feel that good.  I don't know if it's just no good for me, or if it's making me detox.  But, I think if the alcohol gets cooked out, it may be better.  Although according to what I remember Alton Brown said, that it doesn't ever get completely cooked out.  

Anyways, thanks for the tip on the celery root.  I'm sure something will jump into my head.  

And for what it's worth San J, I have another pheasant completely defrosted in the fridge for hopefully tomorrow.  

I have to admit though, I'm feeling kind of under the weather.  Everyone around me has been sick and I've praying to God saying, it's a miracle I haven't been sick yet, but I may not have dodged that bullet.  I feel kind of lousy tonight.  Every time I get to feeling really well, this happens.  Oh well, such is life.  Hopefully I still have energy to make the pheasant, because I bet it would help!!!

When we made lamb stews, we used to boil big chunks of the root in with other herbs & spices (parsley root, fresh thyme, etc.) to make a very flavorful soup stock.  We didn't keep it in the soup though.

Celery root is my favorite substitute for mashed potatoes.  I peel it, cut it into cubes and steam it.  When soft,
I puree it in the food processor with some olive oil and sea salt & pepper.   Another way I like it is roasted with
Butternut squash cubes of the same size  with olive oil and salt, like home fries.....yummy.

Alcohol has a lower vapor point than water, so doesn't even have to boil to vaporize all of the alcohol...

Why bother I say.

It's true, it makes me dizzy even after a long cooking.

For significant info I sometimes just do "copy thread" then "save to disc" for later perusal.

I like the roasting idea.  And the mashed potatoes.  And just about every way I've seen here, sounds good.  The foodtype base says you can even grate it and eat it raw.  That could be good too!

When you finally get around to trying it, let us know how (you chose to cook/prepare it) and what you think (about the way you ate it).


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Tonight I made a pot roast.  I used chuck roast, browned it in a dutch oven, removed it from the pan, then I sauted carrots, parsnips, routabega and celery root in the olive oil I browned the beef in.  Then I removed the root veggies and set them aside.  I sauted onion and garlic in the pan.  Next I added an entire bottle of red wine, beef stock, ghee, thyme, bay leave and fig jam in the pan to deglaze it.  I boiled the liquid, added the beef back, covered it and put it in the oven at 300 degrees for about three hours.  After three hours I added the veggies back, uncovered the pan and cooked it for another hour in the oven.  It was a great meal with a lot of left overs!  Cooking things in a pot like this with wine is my favorite kind of cooking!  There is a lot of work up front, but once you get it into the pot, you can relax.  I do this with beef stew meat or chuck roast, veal (osso bucco), lamb shanks or oxtails.  These meals are great if you are having company.  The house smells really good and you can spend time with your company sharing appetizers and talking instead of rushing around to cook!

It will be even better tomorrow when all the flavors.  It has been snowing for two days now, so this is perfect weather for this type of meal!

Patty H, your pot roast sounds sumptuous! Licking my chops

Instead of using the Dutch oven, how can you brown the chuck roast? Also, what exactly is a chuck roast? Are there other parts I could use? And what kind of red wine do you recommend?

Look back at my reply #6. Julienned or grated - same deal for this appetizer.
(Sorry. Haven't figured out how to put two quotes in one reply.)
