Methods for cooking Fresh Celery

Braised or Boiled Celery

Arrange the prepared celery in a heavy skillet or kettle. Pour in water or chicked stock - mixed about 1/4 cup white wine, if desired - to a depth of about 1/2 inch. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until tender when pierced with the point of a sharp knife, 10-15 minutes. Drain. Season and serve.

Steamed Celery

Steaming preserves most of the delicate celery taste. Arrange cut up celery in a steamer basket or colander over simmering water. Cover loosely and steam until the pieces are tender when pierced with the point of a sharp knife, 10 to 15 minutes, serve very hot, or continue with the recipe.

Microwaved Celery

Arrange about 1 pound of cut up celery in one layer in microwave dish. Add 1/4 cup water and cover with plastic microwave wrap. Vent Microwave on high for 10 minutes. Let stand 3 to 4 minutes, open and serve.
