How To Make how to store celery for weeks

  • 1
    Take the stalk out from its bag and if there’s an elastic band, remove and recycle or discard.
  • 2
    Remove any moisture using paper towels but do not wash the celery.
  • 3
    Place the stalk on one end of a large piece of aluminum foil and roll it tightly. Pinch the ends closed loosely so the ethylene gas can escape. Transfer to the crisper until needed.
  • 4
    Wrap it again every time you take some ribs from the stalk.
  • 5
    If there are leftover ribs that are cut and washed, place them in a container and fill it up with cold water. Transfer the container to the fridge; change water every 2 days.
