Is it magic celery?

You know how there are some items that are common in some people’s kitchens, but for whatever reason, it just isn’t common in yours?

Celery is one of those things at my house. I buy it if I’m making stuffing or Bloody Marys. That’s about it.

This celery?

I bought it in mid November for my Thanksgiving stuffing. This is what it looked yesterday, in mid January.

You know why it is still fresh, green and crisp after 2 months in my fridge?
Because I stored it tightly wrapped in foil.

I have had celery for 6 months that still looked (and tasted) like it had just come off the produce stand. For whatever reason, wrapping it in foil keeps it fresh for a long, long, long, long time.
Cool, huh?

    Not a celery lover but have tons of friends who are… what a great little tip to share with them. I of course will give you all the credit :)

    I’m lazy and all about anything easy. I buy celery precut and bagged in releasable bags. I only eat the “good” parts so that means I don’t have to cut the top or ends off. I just pull it from the bag, roll it in a little peanut butter and I’m good to go!

    That is AWESOME to know. I just used two not-so-crisp stalks in soup and threw out the rest. With foil I guess it would have still been fresh!

    Fantastic tip because I do love celery…but even so, I end up throwing a lot of it away. Will use this tip for sure. Thanks for sharing.
