Pickled Celery

Chef Aaron Woo of Natural Selection restaurant in Portland combines this quick pickle with a variety of vegetables and tops bowls of his Carrot and Parsnip Soup with it. For the home cook, we opted to keep it simple and use just the celery. A spoonful of it gives the soup lots of flavor and crunch.
