There is nothing more rewarding than munching on crunchy celery straight from the garden. Celery is easy to grow, if you give it plenty of water, fertile soil and heaps of nutrients.
Celery is frequently dismissed as ‘rabbit’ food or something to eat to stave off hunger pangs when you are on a diet, but this crunchy green stalk is actually one of the healthiest of all vegetables. It has lots of vitamins, minerals and abundant antioxidants and is low GI but high in fibre.
It can be eaten raw with dip or covered in peanut butter or cooked and it adds flavour to stocks, soups and stews as well as being a vital garnish for a bloody Mary!
