i didn't know you could cook celery, I thought you could only eat it raw!!!! Do you have any ideas on how I could cook it in a soup or anything easy. Thanks

celery - a vegetable noted for it being green, stringy and tasteful.  added to many dishes and my personal favorite slathered in peanut butter
Celery is great to add to soups, however I also chop it up and I love the leaves too...to add to the crockpot with any potatoes and carrots added. It will cook to a soft consistency and lose the stringiness it is noted for. Hope this helps.

I just made cornbread dressing for Thanksgiving that has a lot of chopped celery in it. You can also put celery into vegetable soup. One trick I learned for soup is that if you like the flavor the celery adds but you don't like to actually eat it, you can make your soup with big pieces of celery in it and then remove them before serving.

I make a tea out of it. I boil it leaves and all for 5-10 minutes and then strain it into a cup and drink it hot. It can lower your blood pressure if you eat it daily. It is considered a negative calorie food because the act of eating it burns up more calories than it has. It is high in calcium and helps to clear toxins from your kidneys.

There is a soup called 'Campbells cream of celery'. It is very yummy over hamburger and rice. Or just over plain hamburger eaten on a bun. Celery is great in soup. Espically vegetables.
