How to Choose
Look for celery stalks that are well formed and straight with rigid ribs. Ribs should snap crisply when pulled apart. Inside surface of ribs should be smooth. Leaves should be pale to bright green in color, and show no signs of wilting.


How to Prepare
To clean celery, cut off the base and leaves, then wash stalks under running water. The outside of the stalk can be peeled with a vegetable peeler to remove the tougher and stringy parts of the celery.


How to Store
Celery has a high water content and has a tendency to wilt quickly. It should not be kept at room temperature for too long. To regain crispness: If the celery sticks are still on the head, cut the bottom off and separate them. If they are already removed, trim the bottom part off each piece of celery. Then, stand them up in a bowl of cold water.
