Ham & Celery Rolls - Makes 20 regular servings or 40 mini servings
2 bags of celery
1 container of cream cheese
2 packages (containing 10 slices each) of rectangular-shaped ham
1 jar of Spanish (green) olives
You'll also need toothpicks, so don't forget to pick some up at the store if you don't already have them!
Here is a quick vid of me demonstrating how to make them. Sorry about my little one crying in the background towards the end, I'll try and get an updated version of this clip out soon - preferably one with a better video camera!
When you're finished making your rolls, the celery bag makes a great trash bag to pick up all the celery pieces that you don't want. As for the celery bundle itself, there will always be stalks that were too small to use for this recipe. Chop these up and stick them in the freezer to use in soups or stir-frys later. I like to keep the ruffled tops of the celery to toss into a pot anytime I am making homemade broth. Just remember to use them if you keep them - there's no sense in trying to be thrifty and filling your freezer full of odds & ends if you never remember to use them up!
