I know I have mentioned the wonderful Aunt Ionia that I was blessed with. Every Christmas Eve we would attend a party at her home and stuffed celery was always on the tray with the olives and carrots. It was always a favorite of mine.
When I got a little older, I always came on Christmas Eve Day and helped her get ready for the 30 or so relatives that attended. My jobs were always the same. Set the tables, grate the cheese for the cauliflower, arrange the cookie trays, and make the stuffed celery.
It's a very simple recipe, but it is very delicious.
Celery, washed, dried, and cut into small pieces -- this recipe will require 5 or 6 stalks of celery.
1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 small clove garlic, very finely chopped
Mix the cream cheese, pecans, and garlic together. Then stuff the celery with the cream cheese mixture.
If you have any remaining cream cheese mixture, it tastes devine on crackers.
