Celery that is light in color and shiny has the best flavor. Celery should be stored by the bunch in perforated plastic vegetable bags in the refrigerator crisper.
Celery is a versatile vegetable. Raw celery adds crunch to chicken, seafood, egg, potato, and green salads. It is an excellent snack food or appetizer. Celery also can be microwaved, stir-fried, braised, or steamed to serve as a main vegetable, but it usually is combined with other vegetables or is included in stuffings for poultry and fish. Celery even has been made into a uniquely flavored soft drink, Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray tonic.
