Tip of the day.
Did you know that you can turn a stock of limp “trash-worthy” Celery into crunchy, ready-to-eat, stocks and then use the base to grow another stock?
Here is how to do it:
Take the limp bunch of celery and cut all of the stocks off leaving about a 2 inch base.
Put the limp stocks in a wide mouth cup of water.
The stocks will firm up within hours and look as good as new.
Poke a few holes with the knife in the bottom of the base with the tip of the knife. Don’t go crazy with it, just a few.
Then, place the base in a pan of water.
The base will actually grow another entire bunch! This picture is taken after 10 days.

This is so worth making because it is so good!
250 g Camembert cheese
1/2 garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon white wine
Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6.
Please note; The Camembert must be whole and in it's wooden box.
Chop the garlic very finely.
Remove the cheese from it's box - take off the wrapping then put the cheese back in the box.
Make about 6 tiny holes in the top rind of the cheese and drizzle the wine into them.
Sprinkle the garlic on top.
Put the lid back on the box and bake in the oven for about 25 to 30 minutes, until hot and bubbling.
Serve the melted cheese in it's box, dipping in some gherkins or just some nice fresh crusty bread.
