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.
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.
