Cut celery diagonally in 1 inch slices. Cook in boiling chicken broth to cover 5 minutes. Drain. Melt butter in saucepan; add flour and mix thoroughly. Remove from heat and add chicken broth and cream, stirring constantly until thick. In 2 qt. baking dish, place mixed celery and almonds; pour sauce over mixture; sprinkle with bread crumbs and dot with butter. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes until sauce bubbles and topping browns. This is an excellent accompaniment for turkey and dressing.
