Food Fare: American RecipesBaked Celery with Slivered Almonds

Colonial American

Wash celery and cut into slices about 1/2" thick; save celery tops. Place sliced celery in a saucepan; cover halfway with boiling and salted water and lay the celery leaves on top. Boil for about fifteen minutes, or until tender. Discard the celery leaves and drain sliced celery well, saving 1/2 cup of the celery water. Set aside.


Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a saucepan; stir in flour until smooth. Add milk and stir. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly. Stir in 1/2 cup of celery water; add salt to taste. Place a layer of the cooked celery in a baking dish, spoon half the sauce over top, and sprinkle on half the almonds. Add the remaining celery, then the sauce. Sprinkle top with the bread crumbs, dot with the remaining butter, and add remaining almonds over all. Bake at 350-degrees F for about thirty minutes. Serve.
