If you're anything like me you buy celery with the best intentions and then a week later it's soft, oddly colored and a little funky. I love celery, but I just don't use it all that often. This is a trick I found on the internets for keeping celery fresh that actually works!
Step 1: What You Need:
It's simple! Two things:
- aluminum foil
Step 2: Prepping
Chop the top and bottom off the celery!
Save these bits in a ziplock bag in the freezer - they're amazing for stock making.
Step 3: Wrapping + Results
Once the ends have been trimmed off, wrap the celery tightly in aluminum foil. All you need in one sheet - don't go crazy with it :D It'll just make it frustrating to get out later and won't change how well it works.
The celery to the right of the wrapped celery in the second picture has been in my fridge for about three weeks now and it's still perfect! I'm really impressed with how well it works and I think I'll keep doing this forever and ever.
