Last week we pulled up the celery, approx..12 plants
they were big with lots of leaves..
since I do like to push the limit with some plants and not really knowing what to do with all of it, ha, ha……I decided to try transplanting a couple to a warm spot covering them with lots of mulch..
they are still looking good..
Now..what to do with all of the celery…hmmm …I’ve made more pesto with the leaves, saving some for smoothies..
chopped up a little for the freezer to use in stews, soups etc..
The heart of this celery is so sweet, unlike the stems…
I found an easy recipe for Cream Of Celery soup with out the cream…
Inspired by Jamie Oliver’s Cream Of Celery
Garlic- 1 clove
Sweat in a small amount of olive oil till tender, add seasonings and 1 Lt of Vegetable of Chicken Bouillon( I used low sodium)
Dried Dill-to taste ( I didn’t have parsley)
Pinch of cardamom ( I didn’t have Nutmeg)
Black Pepper to taste
simmer for approx. 15 min
Then I added a couple of tbsp. of Celery pesto
Garnish with plain yogurt..
didn’t miss the cream at all 😉
we made several batches that are now in the freezer ..
