Do you use celery root when making chicken soup?

I'm wondering whether to slice up some celery root I happen to have on hand and add it to the pot of chicken soup that's on the stove, about to come to a simmer. In addition to chicken thighs, legs and wings I've already added onions, celery, parsnips and carrots. Would celery root enhance my soup? Thanks!

  1. I have never done this, but I do love celery root. I think it would be a great addition.

    If you do add in, let us know how it turned out.

    1. yes, I always use celery root in chicken soup.

      1. When I'm out of celery, I throw in celery root. It's a bit of a shame, though, because it's so good as a dish on it's own.

        1. I don't use celery in any stock b/c IMO it can add a bitter note if left in too long. Celery root is different. I add it near the end of the stock making process b/c I like to use it afterward sliced on rye bread with a slice of hot roasted ham with mustard. It's the Alsatian in me.

          1. I don't always, but I have used it often. We quite like it.
