I’m not a big fan of raw celery but it’s handy to have for cooking soups and different dishes…so I try to keep some in the fridge. I was having a problem with it ruining (getting shriveled up or limp and slimy) before I really got a chance to use it all so I started researching ways to prolong the “shelf life” of it in my fridge. I can’t recall where I found this tip but I tried it and it really works!

When you buy celery, wrap it in tin foil and put it in the crisper in the fridge…it will stay crisp for a lot longer than if you don’t do this…I’ve had my celery in the fridge a couple of weeks and it’s as good as new!

I’m hoping to try making a celery soup soon to use up my ever-lasting celery! I’m thinking about this one…. http://recipes.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Quick_Celery_Soup_Recipe
