    I trim my celery and soak in sink with vegetable water to clean. I then cut up big stalks into smaller bite size pieces.

    Thank you Chef! I have been scouring the internet for months now trying to figure out the best way to clean this mysterious vegetable. There have been no reliable sources and I have wasted pounds upon pounds of celery cleaning it the wrong way. If i hadn’t finally typed "How to clean celery" into the youtube, I would still be without this delicious chicken noodle soup that i have been craving for months!

    Helpful hint, if you add some peanut butter and some raisins you can make "Ants on a log" and what a healthy treat those are!? Amiright?!

    Thank you! although if you want to save water try rinsing off in container! 🙂

    Why cold water and not hot?

    Thank you. You are the only video that I have watched who said to remove the strings if eating celery raw. My gratitude for your clear explanation.

    Nice video.  I didn’t even know you could peel celery.  But it seems like there should be an easier way to wash it.
