    LOL, they are damned ugly.

    You'll need to peel it well, they have a very thick tough skin, after that you can do anything you like. Treat it like potato or swede and stuff.

    I've never heard of this to be honest. I think i'll check it out in the supermarket tonight. If I treat it like a potato, does that mean literally? I.e I can boil, roast, mash etc? What does it taste like?

    It's hard to describe the taste really, sort of halfway between a turnip and a swede. I love celeriac chips. :)

    Jim are you sure that's not a brain you've photographed LOL? I've never seen one of those in the supermarket! What do they taste like - might have to go this a go. :8855:

    Can I have Pepperamis on Induction - they only have 0.6g of carbs a stick?

    well ....i'm made the chips and they were nice .........had a bit sweetness to them , but they are a good alternative to potatoes

    it was a mare to peel and chop thou , and it looked horrid but don't let that put you off
