How do I buy celery that isn’t bitter???
Speaking of bunnies, I’ve been eating so much salad lately, and tons of celery, but Lord, I can’t stand how most of what I buy tastes rancid and bitter. Almost inedible.
Is there a secret to buying good celery? Is it the color of the stalks? The two bunches I bought yesterday, the stalks seem a good color of green, lots of leaves at the top. Nothing looks wrong or aged with the bunches…they slice crisp-like but whoa, taste them and yuck.
As a child of the 50s, I remember the tri-divided glass dish that came out at every holiday meal, or fancy dinner, in which there were celery stalks, olives, and, huh, all of a sudden I can’t remember what the third thing was. Not carrots. Pickles maybe, sweet gherkins?
Anyway, if there’s a green grocer among you, or a Celeryista, fill me in. I love celery.
