Didn't have pear juice so I used two whole organic pears and about a cup more broth. Otherwise I made it as directed and it was superb! Best of all my very fussy teen daughter loved it! I grew celeriac this year for the first time and this was the first recipe I tried with it and I am glad that I did. Thanks Kitina.
I got a large celeriac in my veg box this week, and I have a ton of pears from the tree in my garden... so this recipe was perfect. I made my own juice from around 5 pears and added a couple more peeled, cored and chopped. The sweetness of the fruit provided the ideal balance to the celeriac - a lovely autumn soup. Thanks.
I couldnt find pear juice so I juiced 2 and peeled and chopped one to add to the soup. I just loved this soup. The celery flavour was mild but surprised me because it married so well to the pear flavour. I know it sounds strange, but its one of those things you have to taste first! LOVELY!
