Celery is sold in bunches of long, pale green stems topped with bright green leaves. Celery is packed with nutrients and is very versatile. Leaves can be washed and added to salads, whilst the stalks can be added to salads, stews, casseroles, stir-fried or eaten fresh. Unlike most vegetables, celery will retain it’s nutrients, even through heavy cooking. It is often chosen as a stock vegetable for this reason.
Choose bunches of celery with fresh looking leaves and crisp, firm stems. Stems should be free from cuts, soft patches or discolouration. Celery can be kept in the crisper section of the fridge, in a plastic bag, for three to four days.
