What to Look For:
Choose a celery root heavy for its size with unbruised skin. Don't pick roots larger than a softball because they are overgrown and will be woody inside.
Easy Storage and Preparation:
The root will keep for a week or more in a cool, dry place. Wash and peel when ready to use.
It's delicious raw in coleslaw. Try it in stews, braised with your roasts or boiled and added to mashed potatoes for a new flavor.
NOTE: An excellent source contains more than 20 percent of the Daily Value for that nutrient. A good source contains between 10 and 19 percent of the Daily Value.
