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!
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.
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, omelettes, 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.
