Hi my name is Lori with Figs Catering in Austin, Texas on behalf of Expert Village today we are going to show you how to make a entire Thanksgiving meal. For our sausage, apricot and mushroom stuffing we are going to go ahead and start by cutting some celery. I got my sausage cooking in the bask so this is a good time to get the rest of your stuff done and I'm going to do about 4 stocks of celery. I'm going to start by doing a slice right down the very center of the stock like so and I'm just going to run my knife through the celery. I continue slicing down the center of my celery, so I can continue to get the cuts that I need and I'm just going to continue to cut down the celery. One of the things you want to consider when cutting the celery is the thickness. I'm doing mine relatively thin about a quarter inch but you can do it thicker if you like more crunch in your stuffing. Another thing you want to consider is knife safety. As you see I have my finger right here and that is going to help my finger getting cut by the knife as I roll down to the celery. One thing to consider whenever you are cutting something is the rocking motion of your knife it helps keep for a nice smooth cut and this is what our 4 stocks of celery would look like.
