Making Celery Crisp Again

 This a quick tip for today about celery. I have always heard that you can make limp celery crisp again by putting it in cold water, but had never tried it. Lately, I've been trying to eat more fresh fruit and vegetables when I need a snack at work. Mostly, I take grapes, carrots, cauliflower, and celery to eat at my desk. Last week, I went to my refrigerator to bag up my snack and found that the only thing I had left was some limp celery.

Perfect time to give that cold water a try. I pulled off a couple of stalks and cut and washed them. I then put the stalks into a container of cold water, sealed it with the lid, and left for work. At my office, I put the container in the refrigerator. I normally snack around ten a.m., so when that time rolled around and I went to get my snack, I found perfect celery. In fact, it was probably the crispiest celery I have ever had.

It worked and I was amazed. So, the next time you have some limp celery, try putting it in cold water for a few hours and see what happens.
