Ingredients

  • 1

    pound celery root peeled, and cut into 2" pieces

  • 1

    pound pears peeled, cored, and cut into 1" pieces

  • 4

    tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1/2

    cup dry white wine

  • 1/4

    cup heavy cream

  • 1

    pinch nutmeg

  • Salt to taste

  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste

Directions

Place the celery root in a saucepan, and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain in a colander. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add the pears and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring, until thick and the pears fall apart. Remove from the heat. Return the drained celery root and pears to a food processor. Add the cream and remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and puree until smooth. Season with the nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. This recipe yields 4 servings.
