Keep Celery Fresh By Wrapping It In Foil

It's tempting to buy the big bag of celery at the supermarket, but you'll seldom use it all by the time it starts to fade. If you wrap the celery in a plastic bag and then wrap that bag in aluminium foil you can get a much longer refrigerated shelf life.

Prepper weblog Preparing One Day at a Time claims they've kept celery fresh using this technique for more than a month. I can't verify that as of right now, but next time I go to the supermarket I'm going to give it a try.

What methods do you use to preserve produce in your fridge? Let us know in the comments below.

    Why not just put all of the cuts in a tub of water in the fridge? Stays fresh for weeks. Saves using the plastic bags and foil too.

      This works perfectly and is far less wasteful. A sealed tupperware container with about a finger of water in the bottom will keep celery crunchy for ages.

    I find that if I chop up my celery once I get home and store it in the refrigerator in an air-tight container, I get much more shelf life otherwise.

    Yeah, um, not very environmentally friendly wrapping it all up in foil. Ditto for The Olden Days.... put it in a tub of water if it starts to limp, its only because its dehydrated that it becomes like that. Bit of water that is refreshed every now and then and the celery is as good as new!

    Well that pic reminded me of my uni days.....
