Leeks With Celery Recipe

Step 1

Put pieces of celery in water, bring to boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. Drain and reserve celery. In a fresh saucepan, cook the heads and tender parts of leeks until 1/4 of the water has boiled away.

Step 2

For the sauce, combine pepper, stock and honey, and add to strained celery stock. Bring to boil and simmer for 25 minutes to reduce. Put the cooked leeks into a new saucepan and pour the sauce over them. Heat the sauce with the leeks and serve.

Step 3

The celery stalks may be added, if you wish.
