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.
Breakfast on Sunday morning is always special for me. Today, I made hash browns with scrambled eggs. When I went to flip my hash browns over, they broke apart but I really liked them that way – more edges to get crispy! Click here for the recipe.
I had a last minute taste for a sweet bread and I wanted it fast, so I made my simple whole wheat bread, the one everyone is making, but I made it into whole wheat raisin bread.
All I did was double the sugar and add a cup of raisins. It turned out great, especially when I toasted it and made cinnamon toast. Wow! Click here for the original recipe (then just double the sugar and add the raisins when you add the additional 1/4 cup of flour. – Jenny Jones
