Growing Celery Plants From Your Store-Bought Celery

30 May

This was one of those food-growing tricks that I was a little skeptical about in the beginning because it just seemed too easy but I was pleasantly surprised in the end at how simple AND effective it is!

First, buy celery (preferably organic)

Cut the bottom end off the celery (you know, the part you always throw out) and place it in a shallow dish of water (refridgerate the rest and use as you normally would):

Give it some sun light and let it begin to grow. You will see the celery stalks emerge from the center:

When I tried this I was concerned about how the celery appeared to continue growing but it never sprung out any roots while in the water.After two weeks of sitting in the water,  just to give it a try, I planted it in the garden. To my surprise, it immediately sprouted roots and continued to grow.

We are looking forward to some fresh celery this year!

Here’s to another successful food hack!

Until next time! ;)

    I regrew 2 stalks this season. Don’t forget to blanche them. I placed toilet paper tubes over the bundle of stocks as they grew to keep sun off and a lighter color less bitter stalk. They grew very tall, but skinny, about the diameter of a green onion, and are fantastic tasting and still very crispy after quite some time in the fridge. Also works with romaine and head lettuce. (Pound the head on the counter and use the conical shaped core) Can’t wait ti try Bok Choy next.
