BEFORE BOILING:

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

BOILING:

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.

ONCE BOILED:

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

SERVING TIPS:

Serve sprinkled with browned breadcrumbs and poured melted butter.

Bon appétit!
