celery root

I have been trying to really cook just from what we have at home since i stored,froze and canned so much this year. Today we had a soup of leeks,celery root and homeade chicken broth with whole wheat bread and olive oil. All was local except the olive oil.The vegtables from Platos harvest in Middleboro,chicken broth from a chicken grown in middleboro and the bread with whole wheat flour grown in Maine. After using the imersion blender we had a silky sublime soup.
It was so comforting and much healthier than potato look soup.This is a meal I will make again.
If you have not seen a celery root it is hairy,ugly blob but worth the trouble to scrub peel and chop.
