Mashed Celery Root and Potatoes
• 1 celeriac (celery root), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
• 3 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
• 1/3 cup heavy cream
• 3 tablespoons butter
Place the celeriac cubes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 12 minutes. Add the potatoes, and continue boiling until the vegetables are very tender, about 15 minutes more. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Return the vegetables to the pot, and stir over medium-high heat until liquid is no longer pooling from the vegetables. Remove from the heat, and pour in the cream and butter. Mash with a potato masher until almost smooth.
