Celery root, also known as celeriac, is a brown root vegetable that is knobby in shape and has an ivory white interior. Its flavour falls between parsley and celery and ranges in size from an apple to a cantaloupe.
It also contains small amounts of vitamin B, calcium, and iron.
How to Select Celery Root:
You’ll want to choose a celery root that is firm and feels heavy for its size, without soft spots. If possible, pick a celery root that is fairly smooth-skinned, as it will be easier to peel.
How to Store Celery Root:
You can store your celery root in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
