Recipe: Creamed Celery


Serves 4-6


  • 4 cups sliced celery, about 1/8 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoon flour
  • ½ cup cream
  • ¼ cup chicken stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Place the celery and butter in a pot over medium-low heat and cover.

Cook slowly, shaking the pan often until the celery is almost tender, about 5-10 minutes.

Add the onions and continue cooking until tender, about 5 more minutes.

Blend in the flour with a spoon until you can no longer see any dry areas of flour. Then gradually add the cream and chicken stock and bring to a boil.

Continue to cook, while stirring, until the sauce thickens.
