I am not a huge fan of snacking on celery. Put it in a soup, stew, or stir fry and I'm a happy camper, but I find myself buying a huge thing of celery and then throwing half out because I haven't used it. Because of this, I rarely buy celery but then never have any on-hand when I want to make a veggie soup!
I learned this easy trick for freezing celery and just tossing it into whatever you're making and it has saved me some serious time and money!
Ingredients:
celery (that's it!)
Preparation:
Thoroughly wash celery and dry. Chop the celery up.
Spoon chopped celery into a clean ice cube tray. Freeze (about 1-2 hours).
Pop the frozen celery cubes out of the tray and place in an airtight container/freezer bag. Label how many celery are within the container (3-4 celery make approx. 6 cubes for me).
Store in the freezer for up to 6 months. Use as usual in soups or stews--just add a little bit of extra cook time!

@nokcha I get the little cubes at Trader Joes :) They have garlic too!
I'm all about time savers like this!
That's a really smart idea.
What about adding this to juice too?
I never thought of freezing celery. What a great idea!
