Help! I Don't Like Raw Celery. How Should I Cook It?

Good Questions

Q: For the past two weeks I have gotten a large, beautiful, leafy bunch of celery from my CSA.

Problem is, I don't especially like celery on its own — too grassy, too stringy. Any ideas of how to use it? Preferably ones that don't include 2 cups of heavy cream?

Good Question: Best Uses for Fresh Celery

Personally I love celery shaved very thin in salads (like this one). I find that it really takes care of the stringy texture, when it's shaved so thin.

Readers, what are your favorite uses for fresh celery? Preferably cooked ones?
