Yesterday, we got our first CSA/Farmshare delivery.
We got a bunch of goodies, like apples, and carrots. We also got a couple of things people would find odd, and wouldn’t know what to do with.
Like Celeriac and purple fingerling potatoes. Last night I made scalloped potatoes with celeriac and some normal looking potatoes, was meh.
Today, I still had a chunk of celeriac root ( Click here to see WTF I’m talking about ) left, so I decided to make, potato pancakes with a couple of the purple/blue fingerling potatoes, and the rest of the celeriac root.
Here’s the recipe for the potato pancakes:
2 Purple fingerling potatoes (don’t bother peeling they’re like the whole ‘new’ potatoes with the super thin peel) grated
about 1/8 or so of a large chunk of celeriac root, peeled and grated
1/4 or 1/2 cup of flour, depending how juicy the veggies are
2 tsp of baking powder
1tsp of dried thyme
1tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp of salt (or whatever you think is good)
Mix all this in a bowl.
Then Grab half of it, and put it in a hot greased pan (I used bacon grease because well bacon grease is good) smush it down into a pancake. Grab the other half and repeat. Cook on one side until set/brown then flip…cook until other side is brown, flip…cook for another 5 minutes or so…just flipping so each side doesn’t burn…so it’s all cooked inside.
I served mine topped with the alfalfa sprouts I got from the farmshare and a side of bacon.
Yeah they look kinda funky because of the purple potatoes, but they taste pretty damn good.
on my plate before going in mah belleh.
topped with organic alfalfa sprouts and some
low cal ceaser dressing. See the happy veggies and bacon?
Oh and the scalloped potato recipe
3 medium potatoes scrubbed and sliced into rounds.
3/4 med/large celeriac root, sliced thin
2 cups milk
1/4 cup flour
1tsp rosemary (dried or fresh)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Mix milk, flour and seasonings in a bowl
layer, potatoes, and celeriac in a casserole dish, pour milk mixture over everything, cover and bake for about 45 minutes. Remove cover, bake for another 15 til brown and bubbly. Let sit for about 10 minutes before serving.
I didn’t get a picture of it before we ate it. Was kinda meh, needed more salt at the table for us. Feel free to add bacon and cheese if you want. Next time I’m gonna do that.
