Baked Celery

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Lennie

By my recollection, this dish is very similar to one my Irish grandmother cooked. Cooked celery as a side-dish vegetable seems to be out of vogue now, but it really is quite good.

Oh, this was wonderful. My great-grandmother used to make this dish. I just loved the celery flavor baked. I followed this recipe exactly and it finished beautifly! Thanks Lennie.....I ate most of it myself.
