Thread: Celeriac

    Default Celeriac

    I was in an Albertsons some years ago when I heard a man exclaim as he
    picked up a celeriac that he loved it because it tasted just like mashed
    potatoes and it was so much lower in carbs and calories.

    I've never actually tried one, not really sure how to cook it. So.. Is
    there any truth to this?

    Thanks!

    It's celery root, and to me it tastes just like celery.

    Yeah, maybe a little milder. We didn't love it. If you added enough
    butter, salt, pepper, maybe some cream cheese it'd be passable, but why
    bother? :-)

    I love celery. Just had a hard time believing it could taste like mashed
    potatoes. Unlike you though I prefer the outer part. I remember getting
    mad at my mom when she brought me celery hearts after I asked for celery. I
    was sick and she went to the store for me. She said she bought the good
    kind so I wouldn't have to clean it. I was like... Clean it? That's the
    part I throw away! Actually not all of it bought I find the inner part has
    no flavor.

    Once when I was working at a small restaurant, the new girl was cleaning the
    aparagus, throwing the tip parts in the garbage, and keeping the bottom part
    of the stalks. She got a good razzing for that. :-)

    Probably because you've only had it overcooked. Lots of people have an
    aversion to asparagus because they were subjected to the canned stuff at an
    early age.

    You might want to try buying a small bunch, snapping and discarding the
    ends, and rolling the stalks in olive oil, coarse salt, and fresh black
    pepper. Then grill them on high heat until just slightly blackened here and
    there but still a bit crisp. Eat hot or at room temp.

    If you don't like that, then there really is no hope for you and asparagus!

    oh I have tried it most all ways..even thinly shaved into a salad.

    I object to the bitter dark green taste in some vegetables.

    with broccoli I can kill that taste with cooking it in the meat broths.

    Brussels sprouts and asparagus fight to stay bitter...or if they give up the
    bitterness turn sour.

    but the war wages on...lol

    Don't find broccoli bitter at all (or asparagus for that matter) but
    Brussels sprouts are a little bitter. I eat them as is though or
    sometimes with butter and FGBP.

    Me either, never would have considered asparagus as bitter, but we all have
    different tastes since Splenda leaves a nasty aftertaste with me, but not
    apartame. Go figure.

    The horrid canned stuff is what I grew up with. Thankfully we didn't have
    it often. I do remember a babysitter trying to force me to eat it. And I
    remember trying to get rid of it when I had it in my mouth at the dinner
    table. I had a babysitting job and the kid's dad was in the driveway
    waiting for me. My dad told me I couldn't leave the table until I had eaten
    it. There was no way I could swallow it. I managed somehow to go into the
    bathroom and spit it into the toilet.

    Since then I have tried several times to eat the fresh stuff. It just won't
    go down be it white or green, raw or cooked. I just don't like it!

    I must say I haven't had Brussels sprouts since I was a kid. If they come
    canned that is most likely the kind I had because my mom was big into canned
    veggies. I have heard that they are really good when roasted but unless I
    get them in a restaurant that way I am unlikely to try them. I don't want
    to cook them.

    I do find broccoli, asparagus and to a lesser extent cauliflower to have a
    vile taste when cooked. I wouldn't say bitter, but something so bad that I
    have to immediately spit them out. Broccoli is the worst and I can't eat
    something if it even has a speck of it in there or has touched it, such as a
    vegetable medley. I can eat a very small amount of cauliflower in a soup.
    I can (but don't like to) eat a small amount of raw broccoli or cauliflower.
    I actually like the taste of raw cauliflower. It just doesn't agree with my
    stomach. I can't eat asparagus no matter what!
