I have learned two really neat things about celery in the last few years. Today, I want to share these things with you.
Did you know that you can turn a stalk of limp “trash-worthy” Celery into crunchy, ready-to-eat, stalks and then use the base to grow another stalk? I have tried it, and it really works. I put pictures at the bottom to show you proof!
How to Revive and Regenerate Your Celery
Take the limp bunch of celery and cut all of the stalks off leaving about a 2 inch base.
Put the limp stalks in a wide mouth cup of water.
The stalks will firm up within hours and look as good as new.
Poke a few holes with the knife in the bottom of the base with the tip of the knife. Don’t go crazy with it, just a few.
Then, place the base in a pan of water. I used my Pyrex Glassware, one of the best wedding gifts ever!
The base will actually grow another entire bunch! This picture is taken after 10 days. I am ready to plant them in the ground now to grow to potential. Growing them can take up to 5 months so start saving the bases and have celery growing year round.
Do you know of any other vegetables that will do this?
