Shrimp-Stuffed Celery Recipe

My family is proud to produce celery on the beautiful island of Maui. As you can guess, we take a lot of "ribbing" for working so hard in a tropical paradise. This appealing appetizer has a creamy filling that blends nicely with crunchy, fresh celery.—Shirley Watanabe, Kula, Hawaii

"Made this recipe as written except tbe celery ribs. I used leftover crackers as a base for the spread. Will definitely make again for people who like shrimp."

"I think it might be better to keep the celery and the stuffing separate until shortly before serving. The celery has so much water in it that I had trouble keeping the finished product dry, even with several layers of paper toweling underneath."
