This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. It is adapted from Jessie Marie DeBoth's Cook Book, published in 1940. Per Lorimama's review, I've adjusted the prep time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients in a skillet or large saucepan and cover tightly.
  2. Cook for about 20 minutes, or until almost tender.
  3. Remove cover and continue cooking until water evaporates, watching carefully to prevent burning.

I was just expecting a nice side dish but this actually came across as kind of a comfort food (meaning the flavor was something from my childhood). Used a mandoline to make quick work of carrots matchsticks. Thanks for the post.

A yummy variation that I will certainly make again. Enjoyed the celery in this. Next time I would add the water near end of cooking. Made for CQ 2014 as part of Italy trip. Arrivoderchi!
