Braised celery

So easy and delicious (served 3)

I used 3 sticks of celery cut in half.

One onion

Sprig of thyme

4 rashers of steaky bacon

Butter

Clove of garlic

500ml chicken stock

Dice onion. Cut celery in half.

Place butter (50g) in a pan and add onion, cook until soft.

Then add garlic, thyme and bacon (diced). and cook until bacon is browned. Then add the celery and stock.

Cover and simmer for approx 45 mins (until celery is soft).

after 45 mins the stock should have reduced quite considerably and your celery is soft and ready to be served.

I served the celery with fondant and puréed celeriac with roast chicken, and then used the reduced stock as a gravy for my chicken dish.
