Valley Bounty: Celeriac

Celeriac is a Halloween-worthy vegetable: rooty, bumpy, almost frightening until you get to know it. I can’t go so far as to say that it’s sweet as candy on the inside, but it brings a delicious celery flavor to winter dishes. Get out your peeler or paring knife to clean off the roots and lumps, and then the root can be roasted, boiled and mashed, or grated and eaten raw. Add it to mashed potatoes or a pan of roasted roots, or grate celeriac, carrots, and beets and toss with the dressing of your choice.
