jeanniep's Journal, 16 February 2007

Still in a weight stall. To top it off, I have had an allergic reaction to something I have eaten. My diet is so regimented right now the only thing I can suspect is this new vegetable that I tried. We call it Celery root here but I believe in the U.S. it is called Celeriac. My Jamacian friend called it Dunnels. they look like a big knob but when you peel it and boil and mash it with butter it is very much like potatoes. My eyes have swollen and I have a rash on my chest. Be careful it you have any food allergies.

You might try turnips instead. I have yet to mash them, but they weren't bad baked like a potato with all the fixins. Make sure you get ones that are no larger than an egg though or they will be bitter. The one I had was a little too large. I read that you can use them almost everywhere you use a potato. French fried, baked, mashed, scalloped, and anything else you can think of. I've been meaning to do a little more experimenting with them. Another potato substitute is Jicama. I haven't tried this one yet though. Sorry to hear about your reaction though, that sucks.

I roasted some Swede as an experiment to have with roast chicken instead of potatoes and it was really yum, parsnips not so, sorry about the reaction :(
