Celery

Season:

  • October November

Preparing Tips:

  • Both celery and celeriac root can be eaten raw or used in a raw salad.
  • Both are good in soups, stews, and Asian dishes.
  • Try them boiled, braised, or steamed as a cooked vegetable.

Storage Tips:

  • Celery keeps for 2 to 3 months at 32 to 35 degrees and 95% relative humidity.
  • Under normal refridgeration, celery looses moisture and becomes limp within 1 to 2 week. To rejuvenate, soak in ice water before using.
  • Celeriac can be stored by layering untrimmed roots in moist sand in a pail and placing in a cool cellar.

Nutritional Info:

  • Celery and celeriac are both high in potassium and provide fiber.
