A selection of Foxy-brand organic celery is certified by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) to national USDA and international standards. Choose straight, firm, fresh-smelling stalks with green leaves; avoid woody or limp stalks and spotted leaves. Wash in cold water, dry and remove damaged leaves and stalks before wrapping in plastic, aluminum foil or in a container lined with paper towels. Refrigerate up to 2 weeks apart from foods that absorb odors. If stalks dehydrate while stored, immerse in ice water; remove tough ends before using. Add organic celery leaves and stalks to salad, soup, stew and stuffing; use stalks as snacks and appetizers, stir-fry and juice.
