Celery: Nutrition and Storage
Nutrition: Celery is a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Folate, and Potassium.
Storage: To keep celery extra crisp, place it upright in a container filled with an inch of water, cover with a plastic bag, and refrigerate for up to two weeks. But you can also just wrap unwashed celery tightly in a plastic bag and place it in the coldest part of the refrigerator. This will keep celery fresh for up to two weeks.
Background: Celery is a stem vegetable that needs plenty of water to grow, because it’s native to the marshes of southern France.
Note: Celery is one of the vegetables that is most likely to be contaminated with pesticide residues, so when possible, buy organic or grow your own.
