Drying Celery

Made egg salad sandwiches for breakfast the other day 
everything was home made or home grown
celery from the garden (we grow it in the green house)
  is tastier  than store bought
 Try drying the celery stocks to use in soups, and stews 
 slice celery into 1/4 inch slices
place in a food dehydrator
dry until brittle
store in a dark, air-tight container

  the leaves I just chop up and put out on a tray lined with paper towels
when completely dry store in a dark, air-tight container
I add the leaves to course sea salt along with other dried vegetables and herbs
 (tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, oregano, tarragon, etc.) from the garden
 and put in a salt grinder
Try using the fresh leaves in salad or an omelet
