If you love celery, you’re probably pretty disappointed at how quickly it goes limp and starts to rot when you stored in the fridge. But if you might only have a couple celery sticks once or twice a week, or chop up a stalk or two for a salad a couple times a week, it’s quite costly to keep throwing out. Fortunately, there is a super easy trick on keeping your celery lasting longer in your fridge.
Unwrap the celery from the plastic produce bag and any cellophane wrapping from the grocery store, and then simply rewrapped in aluminum foil. It will stay fresh for at least 2 to 3 weeks, and sometimes longer. Simply unwrap the foil and then rewrap when you have removed however many stalks you need.
If you start noticing your celery growing limp, it’s a perfect time to chop it up with an onion or two and start up a soup base. And you can freeze that soup base once you are done, if you don’t want to make a whole soup at the time.
