I used straight molasses in place of the brown sugar, but I would simplify this recipe next time going with a balsamic glaze in place of brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. It'll be easier to make...

While I can’t say this side dish LOOKS appetizing it is quite tasty. The celery took longer to cook than I thought (maybe my matchsticks were too big ??) but it was enjoyed.

I used chicken broth in place of vegetable and cut the brown sugar in half after reading the reviews. Good recipe that goes great with wild game. Thanks for sharing!

Far too sweet.
