Avoiding Bitter/ Smelly Celery

At the store:  A little “Scratch 'N Sniff” does wonders here.

The whiter, the sweeter

Wrap celery stalk in paper towel and plastic wrap.

If growing it:

The bitter taste in celery is due to the buildup of chlorophyll in the stalks. To get rid of the bitter taste, you must blanch the celery by protecting the stalks from sunlight during their last 10 to 14 days of growth.
