Description

Member Devon Karn says, "This is one of my favorite things: I made it for Thanksgiving last year, and about a hundred times since then."

Ingredients

3 cups
milk
3 cups
water
1 tablespoon
salt
5 tablespoons
butter
2 1/2 pounds
celeriac (celery root)
1  
russet potato
   
chives
1  
onion

Instructions

Bring milk, water, and salt to a boil in a heavy, large saucepan over high heat. Add celery root cubes, potato cubes, and onion quarters; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 30 min.

To puree, drain vegtables, discarding cooking liquid. Or, if using a blender, reserve a little of the cooking liquid. Combine vegetables and butter in food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with fresh chopped chives. Serve warm.
