After buying a bunch of celery due to a peanut butter craving, I’m left with more than half of what I intended on using. As the week has gone by, its crunchy snap has become more of a soft bend. Instead of throwing half the bunch out, I decided to its remains as a culinary challenge. What could I transform these often bitter and fibrous stalks into that would be tasty, and save me from wasting the rest of the lot, or having to spend at the market once again. After looking at what I had in my larder, here are a few options I came up with.

And with any luck you’ll have a couple to spare for these delicious Bloody Mary’s you could be sipping this weekend.
