What??? What is wrong with you people? You need to wash your sick minds out with soap!
How many times have you bought celery (I keep typing “salary” by accident), used 2 pieces, a few days later gone back to use another few pieces only to find it limp as a three dollar bill? (Huh? 3 dollar bill? Why did that come to mind?) This happens to me all the time and I end up tossing it into the compost. Last time I thought about that fun “science” lab we did in elementary school in which you put a stick of celery into a cup of red water, another in a cup of blue water and leave it. The next day one stick is red and the other is, you guessed it: blue! Since the celery is obviously drinking the water, I wondered if such treatment might not improve its weary condition. Only one way to find out. I stuck my limp, sad, pathetic celery into a large vase of water and put it on the counter. A few hours later, firm celery, the way we like it! You can keep it in the fridge for a couple of days in the water. But not too long or it will get grody.
