  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Celery is a versatile and healthy vegetable that is loved for its crunchy texture and numerous health benefits. It is commonly used in dishes like tuna salad and Ants on a Log, and is an essential ingredient in a mirepoix. While recipes often call for just a rib or two of celery, it's important to know how to store the rest of the stock to keep it fresh for an extended period of time.
    One popular method of storing celery is to cut it and store it in water, which can give it a lifespan of around two weeks. However, there is a trick that can make celery last even longer - up to four weeks. This unusual trick involves keeping celery away from ethylene gas, which is naturally released by certain fruits and causes produce to ripen.
    The release of ethylene gas is the reason why celery and other types of produce wilt and become discolored. It also turns celery and other greens yellow. Apples are among the biggest emitters of ethylene gas, and keeping them away from celery is important to prevent premature ripening. Additionally, storing celery in a plastic bag can trap the ethylene gas and shorten its shelf life.
    To keep celery fresh for an extended period of time, it is recommended to store it away from ethylene-producing fruits like apples. Avoid storing celery in a plastic bag, and instead, store it in the refrigerator in a breathable container or wrapped in a damp paper towel. This will help maintain its moisture and prevent it from becoming limp and slimy.
    By following these storage tips, you can ensure that your celery stays fresh and crisp for much longer. Whether adding it to your favorite recipes or enjoying it as a healthy snack, properly storing celery will help you avoid the disappointment of finding wilted and discolored stalks in your fridge. So remember, keep celery away from ethylene gas and store it properly to enjoy its crunchy goodness for weeks to come.
  • Subtitles section
  • Celery is the crunch in your tuna salad, the log in the nostalgic childhood treat Ants on a Log, and one of the three main ingredients in a mirepoix.
  • Loved for its satisfyingly crunchy texture and a laundry list of health benefits, it's an anti-inflammatory, digestion-aiding, low-calorie veggie that's high in antioxidants.
  • But if your recipes call for just a rib or two, how do you store the rest of the stock to keep it fresh for weeks to come?
  • It can go bad in a hurry if not stored properly.
  • One commonly known way to store celery is to cut it and store it in water, which can give it a lifespan of two weeks, according to all recipes.
  • But celery can last much longer, up to four weeks, if stored using this one unusual trick.
  • Have you ever seen green sadness?
  • Have you ever heard of that?
  • It's okay if you haven't, we'll explain it.
  • In a video for eHow, farm-to-table chef Tekka Thompson showed YouTube viewers what it looks like in the form of expired celery.
  • Limp, slightly slimy, and rubbery, it has lost moisture and gained discoloration.
  • It's basically a floppy shell of its former crispy glory.
  • In a piece for Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences, professor of vegetable crops Peter Ferretti explained that celery and many other kinds of produce wilt due to the natural release of ethylene gas,
  • Which causes them to ripen.
  • The gas also turns celery, broccoli, kale, and other greens yellow.
  • Among the biggest emitters of ethylene are apples, which ripen surrounding fruits faster, so you probably want to keep it away from your celery.
  • You also don't want to keep the celery in a plastic bag, which will prevent the ethylene gas from escaping and shorten the veggie's shelf life.
  • According to Cook's Illustrated, the best way to let ethylene escape while also keeping the moisture in is to wrap the whole stalk of celery in aluminum foil and store it in the fridge.
  • Don't make it too tight to where ethylene can't escape.
  • It shouldn't be too loose, either, or it won't keep in the moisture.
  • So we've learned that wrapping celery in aluminum foil and storing it properly can extend its shelf life.
  • But how does freezing impact the vegetable?
  • Luckily for those who enjoy freezing food scraps for homemade stock, it's perfectly okay to store your celery in the freezer.
  • But you'll want to prep it before you do.
  • Before you freeze celery, it's important to blanch it to ensure it maintains its taste and crunch.
  • But what exactly is blanching, and how do you do it?
  • According to Food Network, blanching is the process by which foods, usually fruits and vegetables, are briefly submerged in boiling water and then immediately cooled to stop further cooking.
  • Since it is boiled for just a short time, the item is still considered raw, so the celery will be nice and crisp.
  • Blanching before freezing prevents the natural enzymes in fruits and vegetables, like tomatoes, from degrading in quality while sitting in the freezing temperatures.
  • So if you need to store that leftover celery, feel free to do so, knowing that it will last with a quick blanch beforehand.
  • If you prefer to use it up immediately, add it to a delicious green salad.
  • If you still have several bunches of celery in the fridge you want to use, you could always whip up a batch of celery juice.
  • Not only is celery juice a refreshing, non-sweet alternative to fruit juice, but according to a medically-reviewed article by Insider, it's also one of the most nutritious ways to consume celery.
  • The rationale is that it allows more of the fibrous, stringy vegetable to be digested, which results in higher absorption of its vitamins and minerals.
  • Another reason to juice your leftover celery is that it contains about 95 percent water, so drinking it is a great way to hydrate.
  • Lastly, since it's low in sugar, it makes the ideal beverage for those aiming to reduce sugar cravings.
  • But celery soup's pretty exciting, too.
  • However, it's important to note that the juicing process removes much of the fiber, because the pulp is filtered out by the machine.
  • As reported by BBC Good Food, consuming celery may also help boost your gut health by protecting you from stomach ulcers and preserving mucus in your digestive tract.
