Celery Buying Guide
Celery is available year round. When choosing your celery, be sure that it looks crisp and snaps easily when pulled apart. Its leaves should be green in color without any yellow or brown spots. Another thing to keep an eye out for are seedstems. These are round stems that are present instead of the small stalks that one usually finds in the middle of the celery. Celery, with seedstems, is bitter tasting.
When storing your celery, place it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. If you are storing already cut or peeled celery, be sure it’s dry. Pat it with a paper towel before putting in the sealed container. And don’t even think about freezing it, as this will make it wilt.
