Celery is a crunchy vegetable that contains lots of water. It primary grows in marshlands.
Good celery should be firm. The stalks should be tightly packed and the leaves should not be wilted. It should have a bright, pale green color. If you would like to store it, wrap it in aluminium foil and place it in the fridge. This will ensure it stays crisps. You can wrap a damp paper towel around it to help it last longer as well.
Celery is great as a snack. It goes very well with peanut butter. It is also heavily used when making gumbo. You can also use the leaves to add a spicy flavor to dishes.
