Using Celery Ends

I made a big vegetable tray this weekend for a Superbowl party we went to.  As i cut up celery I realized I could use most of what I was trimming off the stalks as I made celery sticks.

Here are the stalks with the top & bottom ends cut off.

I chopped up the tops and nearly all of the bottoms.  They filled this little Ziploc.  I tossed them in the freezer and I can use them next time I make Italian Sausage Soup or mix them into spaghetti sauce.

You can also freeze diced onion and diced bell pepper.  If they're getting old just chop & freeze so you can use them at a later date.

Love, Katie


  1. I do the same thing. For herbs I chop them and freeze them in ice cube trays in olive oil.

  2. Great idea, Erin! I'll have to be on the lookout for some small ice cube trays.


So, what do you think?
