Thinking cleverly with celery

  1. If your celery came in a plastic bag, take it out of the bag as soon as you get home. Celery doesn’t like being stored in plastic.
  2. To keep your celery crisp and delicious, don’t cut or slice it. Celery retains more moisture when its kept whole.
  3. Wrap your celery in tin foil. Its tin foil coat should be tight enough to stop moisture escaping, but not crumple the stalks.
  4. Now pop it into the crisper in your refrigerator, and it should stay fresh for between 1 and 2 weeks.

The science of celery

Like many fruits and vegetables, celery releases ethylene gas. When stored in a plastic bag, the gas is trapped and accelerates moisture loss and spoilage. Foil, on the other hand, allows the ethylene to escape, while keeping moisture in, and helps the celery stay fresh for longer.

Keeping cut celery fresh

Cut celery stalks lose moisture at a faster rate, so store them in your refrigerator in a sealed container, submerged in water. It keeps the stalks hydrated and crisp.
