Celeriac Potato Apple Hash



Celeriac is part of the Apiaceae family which means it shares  kinship with celery (obviously), carrots, parsley, and fennel just to name a few. It takes a very long time to grow. I seeded them in the greenhouse in trays in February, then we transplanted in the field in late april/may, and I finally started harvesting them the first week in October.  Pretty wild! 

Celeriac has such a unique taste...it's like a potato with a slight taste of celery. Man, does it make an A+ addition to soup. Truly great. 

Other options for enjoying Celeriac are raw in a salad (pairs well with apple), hashbrowns (50/50 celeriac and potatoes) or in a hash. 

Here's my hash recipe: 

Celeriac Potato and Apple Hash
1-2 Celeriac bulbs, outside removed and chopped
3 medium potatoes (I used Yukon Gold...you can also use sweet potatoes for this too), peeled and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 large apple, peeled and chopped
2 strips of bacon, cooked until crispy
olive oil
salt and pepper
honey

Boil water and add chopped celeriac. Simmer for 3 minutes and then add potatoes. Simmer for an addition 2 minutes. 

Remove from the heat, drain, and let cool. Meanwhile saute onions and in a separate pan cook the bacon.  After bacon is done cooking let it sit on a paper towel to absorb grease.  

After onions are translucent combine apple and potato/celeriac mix. Cook for a few more minutes and then add bacon. 

At the very end drizzle honey over top
