Grown in Australia
What and Where A tall-stalked vegetable that is a member of the parsley family and native to the Mediterranean. Our celery is on the Mornington Peninsula.
Flavour Mild, green and refreshing with a gentle peppery finish
Use Celery goes very well with various cheeses so it can be made into a salad with rocket, pear and blue cheese, for example, or with mixed leaves, walnuts and parmesan. Enjoy it in a gratin flavoured with bay and thyme, in a casserole with carrots, onions and garlic, in a soup finished with nutmeg and cream, as crudité with a dip, or as a classic Wardorf.
Cooking Tip Slice celery on an angle – it creates a pleasing shape.
Selection and Storage Look for firm stalks (they shouldn’t flex) with a clean, bright green colour. Keep refrigerated, wrapped clingfilm or foil.
In Season Available all year.
