Celery jam may seem a bit confusing at first, but when paired with a cheese platter including brie or goat cheese and it all makes perfect sense. This unique combination makes an outstanding appetizer or snack that will leave your guests raving.

Celery Jam
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
4 cups



  1. Wash celery and slice the stalks crosswise into thin slices. Scale to obtain 1 lb (4 3/4 cups).
  2. Bring large pot water to a boil; add celery and cook until celery is almost tender (a dente). Drain well and discard water.
  3. Combine sugar, water and lemon juice and stir on low heat until sugar dissolves. Turn heat to medium and bring to a boil. Once boiling stop stirring and heat until a thermometer registers 230°F.
  4. Carefully add drained celery and stir. Return to a boil and then turn to simmer. Stir gently and simmer until mixture is glazy and has thickened, about 40 - 50 minutes. (If after this time the jam is still runny keep on heat for a little longer. You can test the thickness of jam by dropping some on a plate and allow cooling for a few minutes. If jam feels set remove from heat.
  5. Pour in a clean jar and store refrigerated.


Celery jam may seem a little odd at first (well then so did Jalapeno jelly years ago), but when served with a cheese platter it quickly makes delicious gourmet sense. The way celery jam harmonizes with Brie, goat cheese or most other cheeses is simply outstanding. For accurate results use a thermometer and if you have a kitchen scale use it as well.
