No More Wasted Celery
Yes, I bought celery a few weeks ago just to find it a few days ago a mass of yuk...no way to use that. I always need just a little celery for this or that, but not the entire package. So after throwing that out and while I was chopping two ribs from a new package, I thought why not chop the rest...and freeze it. Ok that sounds good. So I chopped it all and laid it out on a cookie sheet to fast freeze. Once frozen, I put it into a zip-lock bag. Little did I know I would use some of it this morning in the soup I am making for my sickie. It was already prepared and ready to drip into the water. Now, I don't know how it will end up tasting in the soup, but how can it be bad? I cook my soup to death anyway, so the celery should just be added flavor if it all falls apart. Now no more soppy mess in the fridge because I have not used the celery.
