Celery Root, Potato, and Pear Mash

Ingredients
8
ounces celery root, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
1
pound russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
2
cups peeled, very ripe pears cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces (2 medium)
1/2
cup whipping cream
1/4
cup butter
 
Salt
 
Freshly ground black pepper
2
tablespoons snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan cook celery root, covered, in boiling lightly salted water for 5 minutes. Add potatoes. Cook, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes more or until tender; drain. Return potato mixture to saucepan.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine pears, whipping cream, and butter. Bring to boiling.* Remove from heat.
  3. Mash potato mixture with a potato masher or an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Mash pear mixture with a potato masher or a fork until smooth. Stir pear mixture into potato mixture just until combined. Sprinkle with parsley.

Variations:

Like tangy flavors? Replace the whipping cream with buttermilk. Out of celery root? Use parsnips for an earthy flavor. Prefer a sweeter mash? Substitute apples for celery root and add to potatoes during the last 10 minutes of cooking.

*Tip:

If pears are firm, simmer in whipping cream for 5 to 10 minutes or until tender enough to mash.
