Celery

spring

Celery is a tough thing to grow in Georgia – so getting organic celery in our boxes is such a gift. Conventionally grown celery is one of the dirty dozen fruits and vegetables – pretty heavily chemical-laden. No matter what they do, a Georgia farmer is never going to grow those gigantic stalks of celery we’ve been accustomed to. This little bunch of celery is just what celery should be – and so flavorful! I hope you’re going to use it right away, but if you’re one of those folks who only uses celery once in a while, then dice up what you don’t eat fresh and store it in the freezer. It won’t ever do in place of fresh, but if you’re cooking up a mirepoix (celery, onions, carrots) or a batch of gumbo and need the Cajun trinity (celery, onions, peppers), you’re all set. Plus you’ve got all those great peppers in the box – and maybe a few onions leftover from boxes past …. make up your own mixture and freeze it in recipe-size portions. Done!
