Serves 4 


1 large celeriac 

2 tsp salt 

1 tsp of cracked black pepper 

150g maple syrup 

16 whole cloves 

1 tsp ground mixed spice 


Here’s how 

Wrap the celeriac in foil tightly and place in a large roasting tray, bake in a preheated oven 160 for 90 minutes. 

Remove the vegetable from the oven and leave to cool for 1 hour. 

Using a sharp knife cut the top and the bottom off of the celeriac to stop it wobbling about when peeling. 

Cut the out skin of the vegetable, then using a small knife score a criss cross pattern around the celeriac. 

Push the cloves into the corners of the cuts. 

Preheat the oven to 200c 

Season with salt and pepper and transfer back into the roasting tray.

Stir the mixed spice into the maple syrup and pour over the celeriac. 

Place back into the oven to caramelise for 20 minutes then remove from the oven and leave to rest for 5 minutes before carving.
