Immediately before cooking cut off the leaf blade, and then thoroughly wash the stalks celery naciowe.


Celery put a small amount of cold water, if we want it to its taste and aroma passed into broth (eg. Cooking soup). If you cook the celery as a separate dish, throw it into boiling water - thanks to retain most of their juices. Celery cook for 15 minutes. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Immediately after setting with salt (approx. 2 teaspoons to 1 liter of water). It is also slightly sweetened (approx. 1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). Boil under cover - this shortens the processing time and reduces the loss of vitamins. To verify that the celery is cooked, you can stick a fork or a knife. If it falls softly, it is ready.


After cooking, drain off celery. After boiling water containing nutrients can be used for sauces, soups, etc.


Serve sprinkled with browned breadcrumbs and poured melted butter.

Bon appétit!
