While most people associate celery with its prized stalks, its leaves, roots and seeds are also used as a food and seasoning as well as a natural medicinal remedy. The stalks in the center are the most tender!
Storage: Celery should be refrigerated. Try wrapping the entire celery head in aluminum foil, then storing it in the fridge to keep it fresh. Also suitable for home freezing.
Preparation: Stuffed or cut into sticks, celery makes a terrific snack, serve with dips, antipasto, and cheese platters or add to salads. Can also be added to casseroles, crepes, omelets, sauces, and stir-fries. Steam, boil, bake, microwave or stir-fry. Make sure to remove outer leaves and any strings. Use any tender leaves in salads, soups, or as a garnish.
