A while back I tried a Pinterest experiment of freezing chopped green onions. I am so sold on this idea and totally love it! So I wanted to try it out with another ingredient that I like to have, and is a key ingredient to some recipes, but we don’t use it often enough to justify having it in the fridge all the time….. Celery.
Using the same idea, I cut up a large bunch of celery and placed it into a Tupperware round 3 container (or a spaghetti dispenser would work). For my green onions I had a shaker top, but the celery I just used the regular seal.
This is just as great as the onions!
I never have to worry about having celery in the fridge anymore! I’m loving this!
Hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I do.
*Update- I’m still loving and doing this years later. I use my frozen green onions and celery mostly in salads or tuna sandwiches (adding these can really make the recipe so much better). I’ve also used them for soups. So far I haven’t had any problems or any time they didn’t work out great. I chop them up a little bigger than normal when I freeze them since I don’t know what I’ll be using them for. But if I want them chopped small like in tuna I just chop them up quick in my Tupperware smooth chopper. I did find these containers that are great for freezing celery and other things in- they are microwavable and dishwasher safe, yet if they break they’re not horribly expensive.
I’ve found an even BETTER alternative to freezing my celery and green onions now, Thrive Life has freeze dried celery, green onions, and a ton of other food items. Here’s the reasons I’ve switched to using Thrive Life’s products in both my daily cooking as well as in my food storage:
