Today I review a tip that been on the internet for a few years. It concerns keeping celery fresh. Does it work? You bet it does. There are a few tips I need to give you for optimum freshness.
IMPORTANT NOTE I AM OPENING THIS AND IT HAS BEEN IN THE FRIDGE SINCE PURCHASE
JANUARY 16TH TODAY IS FEBRUARY 26TH
My ThoughtsMost of you know that I cook constantly therefore I buy in bulk and store accordingly. I buy a 3 pack of celery at the time and wrap each one. If you do the same then: Be selective, by that I mean the one that looks to go bad quicker wrap and label 1. Do the same with the others saving the best looking one for the last to use. I have 3 of course 1, 2 & 3...
Do not open the others until using the first one up..then continue on. Store those in the back of your drawer for safe cold keeping.
- Buy or use what you grow at it's freshest point
- Use only heavy duty foil
- Wrap immediately after coming home: Cover entirely no openings.
- Place it it the vegetable bin of your refrigerator checking and setting the humidity**mine has been set to the lowest humidity**
Moving on down you can see the brown on the edges.
That is pretty much what I would cut off of it anyway.
A closer look at the ends beginning to turn brown
Checking this end out, it is turning brown now too
Look at how crisp this is, well trust me it is.
Can you believe the color? I can tell you it is as crisp as the #1 Celery
Did I tell you that this is Celery #2? Celery #3 is still in the fridge and it has no browning at the base and is just beginning to brown a little on edges...It may last for 2 more weeks who knows but I may have to use it depending on what I choose to cook.
Today is day 42 I still have another left to use. I used Celery#1 within the first week and it was the worst looking one of them.
YES IT WORKS!
IT IS CRISP!
IT HAS FRESH FLAVOR!
JUST LIKE FIRST PURCHASED!
