I like to save the celery hearts for soup. (Hearts from two bunches of celery are shown above.)

After we use the green stalks for salads or celery sticks, the light inside stalks, along with all of the leaves, are perfect for adding to vegetable soup or chicken soup! Just wrap in foil and save until you're ready to make soup.

I haven't heard of wrapping celery either! Thank so always bugs me that the last few pieces go to waste before we use them.

Here's my tip for making soup go the distance:

Humm.....thanks for reminding me that I HAVE celery in the fridge. :-)

My kitchen tip today is on knowing how your food should smell/look when you buy it from the store. I've had too many bad experiences getting home and having spoiled or bad foods *sigh*.


That's the link to my tip for making chicken stock. And your idea to wrap celery in foil really works! I've been doing it for a while now. I cut off the bottom, separate the pieces and wash them, then wrap them up again. (I usually snack on those lighter colored pieces in the middle, which are so sweet!)

Here is my post about recycling eggs shells :)


I buy celery and it always goes bad! Thanks for sharing. My kitchen tip is how to save a burnt cake.
