  3. Boil until tender, test by inserting a knife into one of the pieces to check.
  4. Add a grated apple in the last few minutes of cooking.
  5. Drain, reserving the cooking liquid.
  6. Mash the celeriac, with butter or ghee, put through a potato ricer (makes wonderful soft, creamy mash).
  7. If the mix is too dry for your taste add a spoon or two of the cooking water to moisten it.
  8. Season to taste and serve alongside a warming stew or BTD sausages.
  9. It has a mild celery taste which lessens as it is cooked. Serves four
