Celeriac- A Salad Recipe from Dena

Have you tried Celeriac, also known as celery root?  This is an item available only through special order.  It is #10 on the list and is $2.50 per lb.  You can order through the special order process at details@beneficialfarm.com. Click here for special orders

Celeric is a root vegetable with a celery taste.  Purees and mashes are a popular way to eat this in the winter.  It can be eaten raw, but oxidizes quickly so have a bowl of lemon water as you are cutting.  I see a lot of recipes that use fennel with it in soups and gratins.

Dena provides a simple salad recipe below.
