Valley Flora Farm (Langlois) and Norm Lehne Garden & Orchards (Roseburg) both grow celeriac (also known as “celery root”), using organic practices, for late fall and winter harvest; your order will be filled by one or the other farm, as specified above.
Celeriac is edible raw or cooked, and tastes similar to the stalks (the upper part of the stem) of common celery cultivars (Valley Flora describes the flavor as having a “sweet, nutty, celery-meets-parsley flavor”!) Celeriac may be roasted, stewed, blanched, or mashed. Sliced celeriac occurs as an ingredient in soups, casseroles, and other savory dishes.
Each creamy-hearted celeriac is sold without the top and keeps quite well in the crisper: the shelf life of celeriac is approximately six to eight months if stored between 0 °C (32 °F) and 5 °C (41 °F), and not allowed to dry out. The freshness of the vegetable can be determined by viewing the hollowness of the vegetable; a fresh celeriac should not have a hollow center. The freshness of the vegetable will also be obvious from the taste; the older the vegetable, the less potent the celery flavor.
