    Chips are easy. Just peel, cut into slices and either brush with oil and put in the oven for 30-40 minutes or shallow fry. The oven ones are really nice if you grate parmesan on them.
    Another really nice thing to do with Celeriac is the following recipe... I can't remember which low carb site I found it on originally, but it's a great hit in my household and tastes absolutely sinful <g>

    Celeriac Dauphinoise

    1 celeriac
    300ml double cream
    100 grams mature cheddar cheese, grated
    Dried mixed herbs, salt and pepper to taste.
    Optional 2 cloves garlic


    Cut the celeriac into quarters then peel. Slice the celeriac into 5 mm thick pieces. Place a layer in a baking dish and add some double cream and dried herbs, salt and pepper. Continue layering up. Place in a hot oven 200 centigrade and cook for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and add a layer of grated cheddar cheese. Place back in oven and cook until cheese is golden brown. Serves 4

    i don't peel it, i just scrub it.
    then i either cut into 'chips' and deep fry, or i put in the oven with other veg and butter and olive oil and roast, or i put chunks of it around a piece of meat, slow roasted, yum!

    It definitely needs a really sharp knife and strong biceps to peel it, LOL. Sorry, I should have said that. I think Marty has the right idea about just scrubbing it but personally I'm a bit OCDish about making all my chips a perfect shape.

    I use a really sharp knife to peel and cut mine. Its super easy if the knife is sharp enough!

    Definitly going to have to dry the Dauphinoise. Sounds super tasty! I usally just make fake roast potatos and chips!

    I tend to par boil mine after soaking them in water with loads of salt and a little lemon squeezed into it.

    Takes the 'tart' out of it...

    Then fried......nom!!

    Yummy - my favorite:D. I let DH chop as my arms too weedy for the task (and probably knife not sharp enough)! ;)

    Now thats a bit debatable. The one I buy says 5g carbs per 100g, but I've heard others say its more like 7g.

    My fitness pal tells me that 100g celeriac, boiled, is 6g net carbs.

    I vote for 6 becuase its in the middle! lol!
