Quicker Cutting Up Celery
I used to hate cutting up celery because it took so long to cut up each individual stalk. Now, I keep the celery bunch together and use a sharp, large knife to cut the whole bunch at the same time. I basically cut off the very tops, because the ends are all dried out, then I cut off the bottom portion that is unusable, then I cut the rest of the bunch into as large of pieces as I want. Then I wash the celery. Yay! Celery ready to go in about 2 minutes! You can freeze the leaves to use in soups.
