The Aluminum Foil Hack For Keeping Celery Super Fresh
By Kaliga Rice
Celery may be labeled as boring, but you can't deny that it's healthy, as it is filled with antioxidants, including vitamin C, beta carotene, and flavonoids (per Healthline). A problem that people occasionally encounter is celery going bad faster than it should, but a simple aluminum foil hack can keep celery super fresh for weeks!
According to EatingWell, the best way to store celery involves removing it from its plastic wrap and tightly wrapping it in aluminum foil. Plastic wrap traps ethylene, which causes celery to spoil quickly, while aluminum foil lets ethylene escape, allowing celery to stay fresh longer.
While aluminum foil is enough to preserve the freshness of celery, you can also place a damp paper towel inside the foil, reports MasterClass. Regardless of how you enjoy your celery, remember to wrap it in aluminum foil to keep it fresh for as long as possible.
