Nice article and reminder, thank you.

2. Celery CRITICAL in soups, imo.

I LOVE the flavor, and use the leaves whenever I can.

3. I use celery in potato and noodle soups, it adds so much.

I also use it in stir fries and cut sticks for Mr gut's lunches. I just hadn't thought of putting some in the potato leek soup I am making for dinner. So it is good I visited the C&B group.

4. I'm a fan of celery and add to everything I can

stalks, slices, diced... cold or cooke, just love it. In fact the celery salsa looks perfect for me to do tonight with my avocados.

thanks for posting.

5. Yup, I use a lot of it, too.

I try to grow all of the forms of it each year, the regular "stalk" celery, cutting celery, which is more like the wild ancestor, and resembles parsley but with celery flavor, and celeriac aka celery root.

12. "Rest briefly"

I'm glad you included that. I tend to always leave that step out.

15. I remember "Ants on a Log" from childhood. Celery with peanut

butter in the groove. Sprinkle with raisins.

7. I'm very glad for stores and fruit stands that sell it by the stalk

--as well as by the bunch. I never have a use for a whole bunch, but it's an important part of many of my recipes.

I don't think so.

9. Never in salsa!

Braised doesn't sound all that great either.

10. One more: it has the highest concentration

of pesticide residue of any veg. Serve celery and farm-raised salmon in the same meal and you'll be face down in your dish before the dessert.
