I regrew celery from a base of store bought celery. Here's the base in water.
It grows pretty quickly.
I kept the base in clean water in a bowl. As it grew bigger, I just got a bigger bowl. I rinsed the celery base and changed the water every few days. I've kept it in my sunny kitchen window.
Here's how big it's gotten. :) I think this is about 3 or 4 months of growth.
I decided to snip off the celery and make homemade chicken salad with it.
Here's the celery.
I washed it all to make sure it was all clean. I patted it to dry. I also chopped up some leaves.
I chopped up the celery.
I cut up a small chicken breast and mixed with some olive oil mayo, celery, bacon bits, black pepper, and paprika.
I took the chicken salad to lunch this week and ate it on a serving of reduced fat wheat thins.
It was delicious and it made me happy that I was eating my own celery that I grew. I still have the base sitting in the bowl in the kitchen window to grow more celery. We will see how it does.
