Celery Hearts

Celery hearts are what we’re used to eating: they’re the tender inner ribs of the celery, which have been protected by more bitter, outer stalks. Yes, eating celery just got simpler. Don’t forget celery hearts are a good source of vitamin A which promotes skin, eye, and bone health!

Celery hearts are the stalks at the core of the celery bunch and typically are the most flavorful.

Handling Tips

Remove any damaged leaves and stalks before storing your celery in plastic, aluminum foil or a container lined with paper towels before storing in your refrigerator for up to two weeks. If your hearts seem to be lackluster, they may be dehydrated: immerse them in ice water.

Rinse Before using
Store at 34-38° F
