How To Peel Celery Root-Ugliness is only skin deep!
All you need is a sharp chefs knife and a cutting board. Lay the celery root on its side. Whack the top and bottom off. Stand the root upright on its flat bottom. Cut the remaining peel off in vertical strips from top to bottom in thin strips so you can keep it steady and lose as little of the vegetable as possible. Rinse the root, and cut it into strips, cubes or whatever your recipe calls for. If you are not going to use it right away submerge it into a bowl of water with a squeeze of lemon in it. The flesh will turn brown quickly after the root is peeled and cut.
