- paprika (not the hot one)

- Cut it in slices about 1/2 inch thick.
- Put the celeryslices in a bowl with water and lemonjuice.
- Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the celeryslices and cook, but don't cook it to soft. It should have quite some bite left to it.
- Transfer the celeryslices to a bowl of icewater to stop the cookingprocess.
- Pat them dry.
- Season them with the salt, pepper, nutmeg and paprika.
- Drench with flour.
