Cut the potatoes into quarters and the celeriac into slighly smaller chunks

This unusual recipe comes from Jamie Oliver's new book: "Jamie's Great Britain" ISBN 978-0718156817.

It is ever so simple to make and is probably a good way to introduce kids to odd vegetables - they don't come much stranger than this!

  1. 'Peel' the celeriac by roughly slicing off the skin - don't try to peel in conventially.
  2. Wash the 'peeled' celeriac - you will probably get about 800g of celeriac from a 1 kg celeriac.
  3. Weigh out an equivalent amount of peeled potatoes, the amount does not have to be accurate - 50/50 ish.
  4. Cut the potatoes into quarters and the celeriac into slighly smaller chunks into small chunks so they cook quickly and evenly.
  5. Add to a large pan of boiling salted water, return to the boil and cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Drain and leave in the pan to steam for few minutes.
  7. Mash with a potato ricer or a potato masher.
  8. Season and serve.
