- vegetable peeler
- large bowl
- large stainless steel saucepan with lid
|Peel the outer side of just the outer pieces of the celery to remove the tougher, fibrous strings. Trim the celery (reserve scraps for gnarly bag) and cut into 2-inch pieces. You should have about 6-7 cups.|
|Cover the celery pieces with cold water in a large bowl and wash thoroughly.|
|Lift the celery to transfer it into the saucepan. Add the garlic, stock, salsa, olive oil, and salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer covered for about 25 minutes. The celery should be tender at this point, and most of the liquid should gone. If needed, reduce the liquid by simmering without the cover.|
