Next time you want a delicious snack, try a few stalks of crunchy celery. It is excellent when eaten raw or with vegetable dips. There are 2 main types of celery: Pascal and Golden Heart. Pascal, also known as green celery is the more popular in the United States.
Celery has been commercially grown for over 120 years. California produces most of the U.S. crop, accounting for 75% of the crop. Florida is second in production. Celery is also grown in Michigan, Texas, Arizona, and Washington makings it is available year-round. Currently, the supplies and the quality are excellent. Now is a good time to promote.
It is a good source of vitamin C. Two stalks have enough vitamin C to give us 15% of the daily-recommended allowance. Those same two stalks also provide 10% of the potassium-needed daily and account for only 20 calories.
Celery is excellent in stir-fry, salads, soups, and with a scoop of peanut butter. It’s great for the beach, school lunches, and picnics. So crunch and munch away!
