Celery Recipes


Availability: Sometimes in summer

Storage tips: Refrigerate in a plastic bag. Celery should store for at least 2 weeks.  Separate leaves from stalks for best storage and use leaves quickly.

How to eat: Celery is excellent raw in salads (veggie salads or meat/egg salads).  It's also great in soup and raw with dip.  

How to preserve:  Freeze it!  I freeze it simply chopped up as I would use it in a soup and that way it's easy to use straight out of the freezer.  The texture is lost so it doesn't lend itself to raw uses after it's been frozen.

  • 4-5 stalks celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, peeled and diced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and diced
  • ¼ cup dill, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp maple syrup, or to taste
  • 1 TBLS olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp lemon zest

Mix dressing ingredients together then toss with veggies and serve.
