Cutting Celery: My new favorite

Last year, I discovered something new for my vegetable container garden. When I first saw the plant at the farmer's market, I thought it was just parsley. But the tag said, cutting celery. It turns out that it can be used in place of celery in many things. It tastes like celery, but doesn't have the strings. I love discovering new things!

It is great :) You probably won't find it at the bigger more commercial stores. I could only find it at my local farmer's market. It's definately worth pursuing, though.

Sounds neat....so is it a special plant or just the leafy part of the celery plant?

It's actually a separate type of plant. I found it in the herb section of the farmer's market. You just cut a handful off as you need some, and it keeps growing and filling in. It lasted all season last year, and was perfect in soups, etc.

ooohh that sounds great. Luv celery bunches but hate the strings. I'll have to keep an eye peeled for that. Did you know there's an attempt to make round celery to use as straws in drinks? Don't know if that has succeeded yet tho'...
