Celery

About

Celery is a fibrous, fresh-tasting vegetable that is very versatile and common in many recipes. The stalks (stems) and leaves are both edible, but it’s best known for the stalks.

Storage

Celery will keep for over a week in an unsealed bag in the fridge. You can also chop it and freeze it in small pieces to have on hand for soups all winter long.

Cooking

Celery is a common flavor in many recipes, so add it to anything where you’d like the flavor. Add it early on in cooking, with the onions, if you want it softened, or later, towards the end of cooking, if you want it to retain its crunch. The leaves make an excellent garnish or salad topper.
