Celery is a marshland plant that has been cultivated as a vegetable since antiquity. It's delicious raw as is or used for dipping in nut, bean, and cream spreads. But its wonder comes from its use as a flavouring ingredient, giving depth and aroma to soups, stews, and sauces.
Nutrition: Celery is a strongly alkaline food that helps to counteract acidosis, purify the bloodstream, aid in digestion, relax the nerves, reduce blood pressure, and clear up skin problems.
