Tips
  • Wrap tightly in plastic or aluminum foil, or place in covered container or plastic bag.
  • To freeze: (1) Wash thoroughly and cut into 1 to 1 1/2 inch pieces; (2) Blanch (plunge into boiling water) for three minutes and chill quickly in ice cold water; (3) Drain off excess moisture, package in airtight containers or freezer bags and freeze immediately.
  • Frozen celery will soften when thawed, and is best used in cooked dishes.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
