[recipe] Jade Celery

Finally figured out how to make Jade Celery that taste almost as good as Mei Long Villages'.

[ At the grocery store ]
- Celery (no need for celery heart. just the cheap kind will do)

[ Direction ]
- With a vegetable peeler, peel celery to remove the outer stringy layer (quite annoying work but absolutely critical step)
- Chop into 2 inch pieces
- Boil for 2 minutes (gives the celery a gorgeous green)
- Rinse in cold water until completely cooled (makes them crispy)
- Mix with salt and sesame oil to taste

[ Stats ]
- Prep time: 15 min
- Cook time: 5 min
- Clean up time: 3 min
