Potato Celeriac Mash

Recipe

Celeriac, also called celery root, may look a bit scary, but once you slice off the gnarly skin, a versatile, semi-starchy vegetable with a mild taste of celery is revealed. Look for those that are about the size of a large grapefruit and feel heavy for their size. They lighten the texture and add another dimension to mashed potatoes.

Yield: Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 4 russet (baking) potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 medium celeriac (celery root), peeled
  • Kosher salt
  • ¾ cup hot milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

1. Cut the potatoes in half and the celeriac into quarters. Place in a large pot and fill with cold water so that the potatoes and celeriac are covered by a few inches. Add 1 teaspoon salt and place a smaller pot lid on the vegetables to keep them submerged. Bring to a boil. Cook until tender (vegetables should be easily pierced with a paring knife), 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and return the vegetables to the hot pot to remove excess moisture.

2. Put the potatoes and celeriac through a food mill or ricer, or mash them well using a fine potato masher. (If mashing, slide off and discard the potato skins.) Combine the vegetables with the milk and stir in the butter. Season with 1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste, and pepper. Serve immediately.

Notes

To keep potatoes piping hot for serving, place them in a metal bowl over a large saucepan or stockpot of simmering water, and cover with foil. Stir occasionally. You may need to add more milk just before serving.

    UMMM. Some flaws to this recipe.

    1. Peel potatoes first before cooking.
    2. Cook Celerac for 5 mins longer than potatoes. If you boil diced potato for 15 mins, it will turn to mush. Boil for 7-10 mins and test.
    3. Add a few peeled whole cloves of garlic to the boiling potatoes.
    4. When pressing through a ricer, first press should drain excess liquid in a bowl before passing potatoes/celerac.
    5. Don't use milk! Use craime fraiche (or sour cream) or marscapone (or cream cheese). Or use a bit of them all.
