Laura Calder’s Celeriac Purée
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
The key to a great celeriac mash is to purée it until velvety smooth. A blender or a food processor will give the best results.
Yield: Serves 6 to 8
- In pot, combine celeriac, lemon juice, milk, bay leaf and enough water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then add salt. Reduce heat and simmer until celeriac is soft, about 25 minutes.
- Drain, reserving 1 cup of cooking liquid. Discard bay leaf and stir in butter and cream.
- Working in batches, purée in blender until ultrasmooth, adding as much reserved cooking liquid as needed to reach a soft consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
