Reducing the cooking liquid at the end produces a rich flavor profile.

Top Review by Cluich

This was very good. I was looking for a different vegetable side for my ham dinner tonight and remembered I had seen this one. It went perfectly with my maple- and brown sugar-glazed ham. The seasonings could probably be changed as well. I'm thinking I might try a little cinnamon and nutmeg next time.

  1. In a covered skillet over medium heat, saute onions and garlic in melted butter until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and heat almost to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until celery is soft. Stir occasionally.
  3. Uncover and heat to a fast boil. Stirring frequently, cook until remaining liquid is reduced to a thick syrup, about 5-10 minutes. Serve immediately.
