Uses

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.
