Limp no longer

Alright, Here is a tip I was recently just told that I think is just fantastic. I buy celery about once a month. We don't usually eat it raw, except in salads. But I always need it for different recipes. By the end of the month my celery is usually limp. Because I don't like to throw things away I go ahead and use it anyway. But then my buddy Janette told me that if I wrap my celery in Aluminum foil it will keep crisp for a lot longer. Voila. It works. Now I'm sure there are probably other great ways to keep your celery fresher but... I don't know them.

Check out Tammy's recipes for other great tips.


  1. I've been doing that for several years now and it works! Mine lasts anywhere from 4-6 weeks.

  2. Dumb question.... Do you take it out of the plastic bag it comes in, then wrap in tin foil?

  3. I asked the same question. Yes, you take it out. Although I don't know if there is any science to it. You might be able to leave it in, I haven't tried it that way.
    Thanks for visiting.
