  1. Place the celeriac cubes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 12 minutes. Add the potatoes, and continue boiling until the vegetables are very tender, about 15 minutes more. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  2. Return the vegetables to the pot, and stir over medium-high heat until liquid is no longer pooling from the vegetables. Remove from the heat, and pour in the cream and butter. Mash with a potato masher until almost smooth.

I did my own take on this "Celeriac Mash," and loved it. I added a clove of garlic to boil with the celeriac and potatoes. I also added some chopped fresh parsley the last 3 minutes of cooking. ...

Celeriac is such a great addition to mashed potatoes! It gives a subtle hint of flavor without changing the texture too much. I like to use red skin potatoes, unpeeled. The small bits of colo...

Very nice! Will definitely make again!

I had never eaten celeriac before but enjoyed this variation on mashed potatoes. The celeriac adds a mild celery flavor, almost as if the potatoes had been boiled in celery water. The consistenc...

Only change I made was I used 6 potatoes and used half and half (and a bit more than called for due to the extra potatoes)... We loved it so much that I've made it two days in a row! Thanks fo...
