Only a mother...#591

.. could love something as ugly as this.

Celeriac or root celery.

Most folks use it - together with leek, carrot and other root veges as the basis for a hearty winter soup.

We boil it, squeeze out the moisture, then whip it with potato, milk and butter for a really cool mash.

Or you can dunk slices in flour, beaten egg and breadcrumbs and fry them as a vegetarian schnitzel.

Very nice, too.

Somethings are just so ugly they are cute. Not ugly enough to be cute, but certainly intriguing.
