How to keep celery fresh and crisp


I am so glad I happened upon this little tip.  I don’t know how many times I buy celery, use a stalk or two, and then just a few days later it is sad, limp and wilty!  So annoying and so wasteful!  When I saw how easy it is to keep it fresh longer, just by wrapping it in aluminum foil, I just had to try it!

And it worked great!  I am not sure how long yet it will last, and be good, but I would think for at least 2-3 weeks 🙂


  • Works well with lettuce and cabbage as well. Best trick I have ever learned. I love celery but sometimes it gets to be too much. Not any more. The foil keeps it better than anything I have ever tried.

  • Thanks, Glenda, yes, I am finding that it works great!!! Wish I found this out sooner…oh all the money I would have saved :)! Glad to hear it works well for lettuce and cabbage too, thanks!!
