Celery

Good-quality celery should have even-colored, smooth-skinned stalks without any blemishes. The leaves should be fresh with no signs of wilting. Look for light green stalks, as they actually taste better than those that are dark green. Even though dark green stalks do provide more nutrients- they tend to be tougher and stringier. While light green stalks are preferred, avoid celery with white stalks which indicates old product.

Fresh celery can add extra crunch to salads, are excellent in soups and sauces, and are the classic ingredient in our Thanksgiving stuffing. Celery leaves, much like parsley, can be used as a garnish.
