It finally feels like fall: our local farmers market is full of our favorite Honeycrisp apples.
For a dynamic duo of flavor and crunch, pair crunchy apples with crunchy celery root, also known as celeriac (and céleri in French).
Celery root, a relative of celery, is a root vegetable. Leafy stalks somewhat like celery grow above the ground, but the part that is eaten grows beneath, looking like a large, bulbous, misshapen turnip. (Use the stalks, which are hollow, as straws in Bloody Marys; they’ll add a bit of celery flavor.)
Like celery, celery root is very low in starch.
In this week’s cooking video, Amy Topel of The Green Guide combines apples and celery root in a salad with turkey and a Dijon-yogurt dressing. Use this as an opportunity to try a new vegetable.
