Were you wondering what to do with all of those celery leaves, it seems such a waste to discard them…

I found several websites today with recipes and nutritional info on the use of Celery Leaves…don’t throw them away, they are the best part of the plant, and you can use them in Pesto!

  1. Wow!! Good thinking and sleuthing and good finds, Thelma!!!
    I’m going to try the celery-almond pesto first!
    When you harvest are you going to take the plant out or cut it off at base and see if it grows some more?

    1. lol! Thanks Laura! I am trying to harvest the celery both ways, I’m thinning by pulling out the whole plant-roots & all and also trying to cut it at the base to see if it’ll grow!
