" Celery root looks very ugly but the flavor is wonderful. If you haven't tried it do - you will be pleasantly surprised. It tastes like celery but perhaps a bit more mellow. It is great as a vegetable as well as a salad. When you peel the root you have to cut quite deep to get all of the skin off. Lite sour cream works in this recipe. If you do not have a food processor dice the cleric and cook a bit more than 5 minutes you want it tender but not mushy."
