celeriac

Post  GWN on 1/26/2013, 12:20 am

I wonder if anyone else grows this WONDERFUL vegetable. I have only just discovered it, and have just had the most incredible dinner of potato celeriac gratin. It is felt to be related to celery, but is grown for the root which is a very ugly looking specimen. However it has many great properties. It is a root vegetable and keeps in a cold room for up to 4 months. It is a lot like a potato, but does not have as much starch, so it would be a good substitute for potatoes.
It is apparently MUCH easier to grow than celery. I have just ordered OP seeds. I wonder if anyone else grows this wonderful plant.

What a great video. It was fun to watch.
For the gratin I just layered sliced potatoes, then sliced celeriac, sliced mushrooms, feta cheese then repeated those layers (except the feta), pour mixture of half a cup of stock and half a cup of red wine, then cover, bake for an hour, then put layer of breadcrumbs, olive oil and parmesan cheese, and then bake uncovered for 20 mins.

It was soooo good, and I always find that potato dishes freeze well to, so several other meals.

Looking forward to the seeds arriving, since it sounds like they take quite awhile to germinate. I wonder how many cereriac per square foot thinking
Thanks Rose....oh and thanks Lavenderdebs

I bought 2 of them while in the city, they are MUCh bigger than hers. However hers look much yummier because it is right out of garden.
Yes we will have to wait to see if she comes along
Did you try growing them? rose?

Embarassed I was looking at the wrong row. Celeriac isn't up, yet. Everything I've read makes it sound like a turnip substitute, but we really like the flavor of celery, so I'm looking forward to trying it.

Although a close relative of celery, this lesser-known kin is far easier to grow as long as your summers aren’t dry and hot. wrote:Although a close relative of celery, this lesser-known kin is far easier to grow as long as your summers aren’t dry and hot.
