How to store celery
The best way to store celery is in the refrigerator. Here are a few tips for storing celery:
Keep it whole: Celery will stay fresh longer if it is not cut. When you are ready to use it, cut off the leaves and then cut or chop it as needed.
Wrap it up: Place the whole celery in a plastic bag or wrap it in aluminum foil or paper towel and then place it in a plastic bag to keep it from drying out.
Keep it cool: Celery should be stored in the refrigerator at a temperature between 32-40°F (0-4°C)
Use it within a week: Whole celery can last up to two weeks in the refrigerator, but it's best to use it within a week to ensure maximum freshness.
Celery leaves can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days.
It's important to note that celery can absorb odors from other foods in the refrigerator, so make sure to store it away from strong-smelling foods. Also, when storing celery make sure it's dry and in a clean, airtight container to prevent contamination.
