I got some Celeriac (aka "Celery Root" though it's not the root of normal celery) at Farmer's market the other day. It's really delicious stuff, it has a spicy celery flavor, a really amazing herby smell, perhaps a hint of radish. It's very tough raw, so you have to either cut it very thin, cure it in a bit of acid, or just blanche it. I put some in a stew and that killed the flavor a bit too much, so I don't recommend that particularly. A lot of people don't realize that celery greens are edible and actually full of wonderful flavor.
