Thumbs up Keeping celery

A good way to keep celery a long time in the ref. is to wrap it real tight with plastic wrap and then wrap that tightly with foil. It keeps for weeks.

Good tip!

Another one related to celery, is if you have some that is started to go limp, soak it in ice water for a minute or 2 and it perks right up and gets crisp again. This works with slightly wilty lettuces as well!

JoAnn, do you wash the celery and trim the ends off before you wrap and store?
