Celery is a somewhat utilitarian, underappreciated vegetable. It is one of those greens that most cooks have in their refrigerator, ending up chopped into a soup, a sauce or a salad. Personally I was never a fan of celery until we started growing it. Now we can’t get enough of it and are continually finding new ways we enjoy eating it!
Selection and Storage: Wrap celery stalks in aluminum foil and store in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Celery can store from 1-3 weeks.
Culinary Uses: To eat celery, try dipping the stalks in a variety of sauces, including peanut butter, hummus, cheese sauce, salad dressing, and yogurt. Additionally, you can make a meal centered around celery, such as celery soup or braised celery. Or add celery to a salad or stir fry, chop it into bite-sized pieces. Celery adds depth of flavor to any dish.
