    • Clean the celery: Wash the sticks thoroughly under tap water. Make sure you separate the stalks and clean so that all the dirt is removed properly.
    • Blanch the celery: Most people skip this step as they intend to use celery in a couple of months. But you can absolutely blanch the stalks to keep them for longer. Just make sure to pat the celery dry after you blanch it.
