I love the sound of this. It's got everything in it that I love. Actually, I have most of these plants started for the garden this year. The only thing that sounds off, is the celery. Has anyone tried this? Do you know if the celery gets really mushy, or has a little crunch? I really don't care for mushy celery, so I was wondering about it. Thank you for any help!

I have made this recipe before but never used a waterbath at the end. Does the waterbath boil the vegetables for another 15 minutes and wouldn't they get too mushy?
