Instead of tossing the end of your celery bunch in the compost, hold on to it to sprout your own celery farm. It's so easy to do — and saves you money at the grocery store. And there's nothing like growing your own eats! Here's what to do:
- The next time you're cooking with celery, cut away the stalks, and reserve the base, which is what regrows.
- Place the root base of the celery in a glass container, and then pour about one inch of water around the celery. Place it in a sunny spot on your kitchen counter, and add water as needed.
- Within a week, you'll see shoots of celery growing from the celery base. You can leave it in a glass jar as it grows or even plant it in your garden! It will continue producing sprouts even after you harvest your celery.
