Baked Celery and Onion with Herbs

4 tbsp. unsalted butter
1 bunch celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 ½ tbsp. organic cornstarch
2 cup chicken broth
½ tsp. marjoram
¼ tsp. dried thyme
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, minced
2 medium onions thinly sliced

Melt the butter in a 12-inch skillet over moderate heat. Add the celery and
sauté until tender crisp, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. In a small bowl
whisk together the cornstarch and chicken broth until smooth, add to the
skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer, and cook, stirring for 5 minutes.
Add marjoram, thyme, salt, pepper, and parsley. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Scatter the onion rings over the bottom of a buttered 12x8x2 inch baking dish.
Spoon the celery mixture over the onions and cover tightly with foil. Bake
covered for 50 to 55 minutes.

Braised Celery, Apples and Carrots

1 tsp olive oil
3 carrots, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
1 red onion, chopped
3 celery ribs, slived thin
2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 cups currants
½ cup apple juice
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup honey
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp chopped basil
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil until very hot. Add the carrots, red
onion and celery. Cook over medium heat until the vegetables begin to slightly
caramelize and soften in texture, about 10 minutes. Add the apples, currants,
apple juice, vinegar, honey and dijon mustard. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer,
and cook 10 minutes more. Remove the cover, and boil until the liquid has
evaporated and the vegetables begin to glaze.
Stir in the chopped basil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve at once.
