If you feel like you don’t know where to start when tackling this knobby root vegetable, don’t fret! We’ve broken it down into simple steps here.
- Rinse the celeriac as best you can. Dirt is obviously going to be nestled in the craggy crevices. I give it a final rinse once it’s peeled.
- Remove the top and bottom. Expect to lose about 1/4 of the celeriac during prep.
Once the top and bottom are removed the skin comes off surprisingly easily with a potato peeler. Give the knife and celeriac one final rinse.
