My mother learned this recipe from classes she took with Yo Yee back in Maryland and it was a staple in our household growing up. Serve as a little appetizer/side dish to nibble on. The longer the dish sits, the more the sauce absorbs.

So apparently celery is great for arthritis among other things! But how many ways can you prepare it? Well, this is one great way! Easy, almost no cook, great flavor. Thanks for posting, I'll be making this again!
