Mix the potatoes with the rather finely cut celery. Add the salt and the melted butter, stir together, place in a hot oven and bake until nicely browned on top; stir the potatoes and let brown again. Repeat this two or three times until the potatoes have been nicely browned throughout and the celery well cooked.
