The Best Ways To Keep Celery Fresh
Aluminum foil
Celery can easily be kept for up to a month in the fridge when it is stored using aluminum foil, as the plastic bag celery comes in traps the ethylene gas and causes it to spoil faster. To store celery in the fridge for two weeks to a month, it is important that you start with a whole head of celery rather than individual stalks.
Airtight container
Storing stalks of celery in an airtight container with water will help keep the sticks crisp for up to two weeks. Start by placing them inside an airtight container that is large enough to submerge them in completely, and then add enough water to cover them.
The best method is to flash-cook the celery and then strain it from the water and allow it to dry off a bit before placing it in the freezer. If you want to avoid the celery clumping together, flash freeze the pieces on a baking sheet before placing them inside an airtight container to store in the freezer for the long term.
