How to Select

Choose firm, tightly packed stalks with medium-thick ribs that are crisp enough to break apart easily. The leaves should not be wilted and they should be a bright, yet pale green color

How to Store

Celery should be stored in the refrigerator. Store leftover celery by wrapping in plastic wrap or storing in an airtight container not made from metal in the refrigerator.

How to Prepare

To wash celery, pull a celery stalk off the bunch and rinse it under cold water, rubbing with fingers or a vegetable brush to remove any grit or dirt. Trim off the bottom edge (the wider part of the celery stalk) and the top part wit h the leaves. Throw the bottom part away; the top part can be used as celery sticks or chopped up for salads, casseroles, or soups. Cut the cleaned and trimmed stalk into sticks or chop into small pieces.
