I've got a bit obsessed with weighing things!!
It's partly to check out what I'm getting for my money and partly to bring portion sizes down to nice healthy limits ... and well it's interesting. And I am loving that due to recipes I am following I have to check some things out in good old fashioned ounces :-)
I just need to find my old fashioned scales, they look a bit like this and then I'll be laughing ... but we've moved house three times since I packed them up and I can't find them anywhere. I think they are in a box in the shed!!
Remember this pastry pictured on the post about the solid soup ... well I cut the extra bit off on the right hand side to use in this recipe ...
... Celery Rolls.
I didn't think that making eight tiny rolls out of one stick of celery was worth faffing about with so I just used one stick to make four. Folding the pastry over and slicing through the gaps as though making the more usual sausage rolls.
I should have believed in the recipe and done exactly as it said.
They were surprisingly delicious. We ate them warm so I don't know what they taste like if you let them go cold. But the lovely braised celery and the warm pastry was so tasty. The only thing was it's virtually impossible to bite through the celery when it is in the middle of the pastry and making them this way... too big to fit in your mouth in one go ... this means your first bite of the roll pulls out all of the celery leaving you with half an empty tube of pastry to eat ... no hardship but it's tastier having the two together as was intended.
Next time, and there will be a next time, I'll make eight as the recipe says and be able to pop them in my mouth in one go :-)
