Long term storage of celery
My wife and I harvested the vegetables form the garden today. We have a whole lot of celery we're not shure how to store for the winter. I was thinking of drying it. I was wandering if some one out there has a butter way. I tried a surch on the net, and found lots of info on short term in the fridge storage but did not find any thing for long term.

I love using the leaves as spice in salads and soups.
Dry the leaves and store in an airtight container in a cool place. To me, they have a very light, green flavor.
