Celery Root Stew

Celery Root Stew | giverecipe.com

Many people find the scent of celery nasty, but it gives me such a great appetite that I am easily tempted by fresh celery at market. I shared two recipes of celery root before: Celeriac With Quince and Celery Root Salad. And today I will share a stew of it I learnt from a friend at college. It was the first time I ate celery root and I was impressed with its flavoris. This stew is both healthy and flavorful with the ingredients. You will see how celery root and apple match very well with their flavors and textures.

    I am one of those that’s turned off by the smell of celery, but I can’t imagine soup/stew without it… I love it when it’s cooked… I don’t like it raw. :)

    That photo looks delicious!!!

    Celery root isn’t something you see too often in the stores here. I love it so I tried growing it. The first year I got small bulbs but had put them in late. Last year I put them in much earlier but they were totally useless probably because of too much rain. All roots and stalk, no bulb at all. Used a bit of the stalks but they are so much tougher than regular celery. I will keep this recipe though. It sounds tasty tasty.
