My mum, who's 83, said she hadn't enjoyed celery like that in years
How to prepare
We grow our celery slowly above ground, giving greener, sturdier stalks that you’ll find in the supermarket. It’s often better cooked than eaten raw. Sweat gently in a little oil with carrot and onion to form the classic soffritto flavour base for all sorts of stocks, soups and stews.
Keeps in fridge for a week; two if to be used in stock. Wash before eating.
