I got tired to throwing away half of my celery when it went bad so I found a way to keep it twice as long. Here’s how:
Separate and wash the celery.
Pat it to remove excess water.
Lay down a large sheet (about 18 by 18 inches) of heavy duty extra wide aluminum foil.
Wrap the still damp celery in 2-3 paper towels and place in the center of the foil.
5. Wrap the celery in the paper towels and then the foil, starting with the long side and then fold in the ends.
6. It’s easy to open and re-close the celery packet when you use heavy duty foil. The paper towels continue to keep moisture away from the celery, allowing it to stay fresh much longer. The worst thing to wrap celery, or any other high-moisture vegetables in, is plastic.
That’s great! I am definitely going to try this. I have the same problem JJ, mine too usually ends up going bad.
I am definitely going to try this, I am sick of throwing away so much celery! Thanks for the tip!
I really like this.
