Mashed Potatoes and Celeriac

Posted

Adapted by Farmer Dave’s from Martha Stewart

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 2 pounds potatoes, peeled and sliced 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 1 – 2 celeriac roots, peeled and sliced 1 1/2 inches thick
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • Freshly ground pepper

Directions:

Place potatoes and celeriac in a medium saucepan, and fill with enough cold water to cover by about 2 inches. Bring to a boil over high heat; add salt generously. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until vegetables are tender when pierced with a paring knife, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain in a colander.
Pass potatoes and celeriac through a ricer or food mill into a serving bowl. Add sour cream and butter, and stir until combined. Stir in nutmeg, and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Farmer’s tip: try substituting parsnips for some of the potatoes or celeriac, for a different flavor!
