TO MAKE A FAGGOT: cut an 8-inch rib of celery in 2 pieces, crosswise. In
the curve of the smaller piece, stuff 3 sprigs parsley, 1/2 bay leaf, and
1 sprig of thyme or pinch of powdered thyme. Enclose the smaller piece of
celery in the curve of the larger piece and tie securely by winding soft
string around its entire length."
