I dislike celery!
And so many dishes call for chopped celery and carrots (btw, I also hate cooked carrots). Like soups, stews, etc. And they call for what would amount to 2 or 3 stalks of celery. What do I do with the rest? It won't be good if I freeze it for use later, will it? Thx.
i stopped using celery in my stocks and soups long ago. i like eating it raw, but it brings a bitterness to dishes that i don't care for. btw, thomas keller agrees. :) carrots, however add a sweetness.
if you dislike them, and don't like the finished product in which they're involved, just don't use them.
oh, and no, it doesn't freeze well at all.
I dislike celery, too, and always leave it out of recipes. When my parents go on vacation and clean out their fridge, they give me theirs. I go to a Little Farm in a local park and feed it to the goats. I don't think you can freeze it, so just skip it.
I leave it out of everything except for my stuffing and then I chop it really fine.
I cannot stand the taste of celery - I even pick it out of canned soups.
