Best to Buy
Choose firm, tightly formed bunches with crisp, green leaves. Store celery in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to one week.
Prep & Store
Wash celery just before using. Trim the leaves and the base, and reserve the leaves for soups and salads. Celery can also be frozen in plastic bags and used in dishes that call for cooked celery.
Slice celery into diagonal sections and add to salads, or braise it in olive oil and serve with salt and pepper.
