what do you do with an excess of it?

  1. I often have this trouble as whenever I feel like tuna or egg salad, I have to buy a whole bag of celery when I only need one stalk. My most chowish use is putting it into a "Holy Trinity" and making a cajun gumbo or etouffee. Otherwise it makes a good salad when sliced into lengths with apples, nuts and blue cheese.

    1. If it were me, I would throw it away since I can't stand it, but I'm certain some other chowhounders have an excellent cream of celery soup recipe or something.

      1. I chop it & put in the dehydrator. Dried bits are great to toss in soups later.

        1. Thinly sliced celery, carrots and radishes (as thin as you can, if you have a mandoline even better). Dress with a citrus vinegarette (orange and lemon/lime is a good combo).
          Add some chopped scallion if you like onions.

          1. This recipe for deep fried celery from Mario Batali is a bit of work but pays off especially if you make a large batch. What you make it for? That's your call. http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recip...
