    I like to keep celery in the fridge as a snack.

    But it goes soft and horrible after only a day or so.

    How can I keep it fresh and crispy for longer?

    Easy, wash and dry the celery, cut the celery into large pieces, and store it wrapped with a paper towel in a plastic container (or use plastic bag if you don't have a large container).

    For me, on the day I buy a full celery, I cut it up into large lengths the size of my pyrex sealed container, wash it, then fill up & place the container on a shelf in the fridge. Lasts well, easily a week.

    If you're short on space in the container, slice the lengths of celery down the middle and they stack tighter. :thumbup:

    I fill an unused flower vase with water and add some sugar, and the celery goes in it. It lasts for weeks. In fact, it starts growing.

    Cut the celery, cover with water and soak for an hour or so. Even limp celery can be saved with this trick. Dry and put into a box lined with paper towels.

    I've always just done the above, and putting in a sealed container. but have to admit it really doesn't last long enough to go bad.

    Works for Spring Onion etc too, way better than the fridge.
