Do not buy your celeriac here!
Rotten in the middle. Some disease. Very poor quality, Tesco!
We have bought two recently on home deliveries. The first started to discolour within a day or two (not discolouration from cutting, but rather it was going off) and we had to throw more than half away. The second we found was slimy on the outside, and inside about a third was rotted away already. More gone in the bin, but the rest of that one was just about okay when the bad stuff cut out and the remainder kept in the fridge. We won't be buying any more of these from Tesco unless and until we can visit a store and carefully select for ourselves. Shame.
Please improve your vegetables
The celeriac arrived with brown fermenting liquid moving around in the sealed plastic, clearly noticeable. Not impressed.
Celeriac for low carb diet
I‘m adjusting to a Keto diet. Celeriac is on my „approved“ list, so I‘ve had a go at it. I find it very tasty. Plain boiled & mashed. Par-boiled then roasted - that‘s my favourite so far. Good alternative to potatoes. I can get used to this.
Not fit for purpose. Soft and brown inside. Only t
Not fit for purpose. Soft and brown inside. Only two days old and refrigerated as advised. Discarded whole celeriac. Disappointing.
The last one I bought from Tesco had tunnels of brown all the way through it where carrot flies had attacked it and I had to throw it away. It's the first "bad" one that I have ever had so I was unlucky. I boil Celeriac with potatoes and then mash them with plenty of butter...... delicious.
It is only half of a small celeriac. It is wet and starting to rotten. Should have been binned to sold.
Lovely and tasty
I love this veg its very versatile
Using celariac instead of potatoes as it is lower
Using celariac instead of potatoes as it is lower in carbs and calories. It makes interesting chips and is lovely in dauphinoise - simply swap it for the spuds and use your usual recipe. Try it mashed with a bit of cream or butter (if not on a diet like me) and serve as a side veg. It has a slightly 'nutty' flavour which is nicely different in veg. To prepare it simply cut off the top and bottom then trim off all the skin and 'nobbly bits' and slice, chop, or chip it. WATCH OUT - it discolours more quickly than potatoes so pop it in a bowl of cold water with a dash of lemon juice or white wine vinegar. Then pat dry with kitchen paper before using it.
Hi all, can someone tell me, does this belong in the parsnip family, does it taste like parsnip. thanks. sorry about the 1 star, could not post without.
