As it’s a root vegetable and is found throughout the autumn and winter the best time to pick it up is from September to April – check out what else is in season with our seasonal ingredients guides.
How to do you prepare Celeriac for cooking?
Since celeriac is a root vegetable it is covered in a very tough skin with many smaller root pieces on the bottom – you will need to prepare the celeriac prior to cooking.
To begin preparing your celeriac, or celery root, you will first want to slice off the top and bottom so that it is stable on your work surface. Next, you will need to slice down the sides to remove all of the skin. Give it a quick wash to make sure you remove all of the dirt and then your celeriac is prepared and ready to cook.
