Celery

Soups, stews, stir-fries, salads, raw with dips and short lengths filled with low-fat cottage cheese or peanut butter for snacks.

Selection

Choose fresh bunches with tight formation. Avoid browned or cracked outside stalks.

Storage

Unwashed in an airtight bag in refrigerator crisper with top and base removed (any clean unblemished bases are good flavour for soups and stews).

Serving suggestion

Trim celery leaves and quarter sticks. Braise with chicken stock covered with baking paper in a moderately hot oven for 30-40 minutes. Set celery aside and boil remaining liquid until syrupy then serve over celery. Serve as a vegetable side dish.
