Celery: Aldi Style

April 15th, 2007 at 11:14 pm

I bought this celery from Aldi exactly one week ago:



Note to self: Aldi's great produce prices probably mean a shorter life once purchased. We were able to eat about half of the $0.99 purchase before it headed south for retirement.

I diced the remaining limp celery to freeze. I can through it in a soup or something.

    A trick I recently learned is to wrap celery in aluminum foil to keep it crisp longer. It really works & you can reuse the foil for the next batch of celery Smile

    Reslicing the bottom and putting the bunch cut end in, in a large glass of tepid water works for me. It does take a while for the turgor to come back.

    I use the same method as Baselle, I'll have to try house's suggestion too...

    Gosh, I'm sorry, but 3 comments so far and no-one's suggested Viagra yet?

    I'll just cut the stalks off and submerge them in water for 30 minutes. Celery regains its crunchy hardness.

    I've been hearing great things about a new (?) product called Evert Fresh bags which prolong the shelf life of fresh produce. Haven't tried them myself yet, but they're easily found on the web ---a fru-girl's dream!

    Piggybacking on cherylyates suggestion - I looked at those bags online and they are expensive! If I remember correctly, 8 uses per bag is recommended and then they're trash.

    Instead I found Fresher Longer from sharperimage.com. Not bags but Tupperware-like containers. Through the end of this month you can buy the 12 piece set for $49.99 and they'll throw in the 4 piece for free plus free shipping on orders over $40. If you go through a cash back site and use a cash back credit card, you'll save a little more! At least that's what I did.

    I'm using them right now and yes, they really do work! No more raspberries, blueberries or strawberries going bad on me again!

    I understand that, though Evert-fresh are expensive at the onset, they are also re-usable. I could be wrong....
