Locally grown celery is especially unlike any you can find in the store. It contains the dark green, potent outer stalks, along with the sweet, tender, blanched inner stalks. Plus it is like a two-in-one in that the leaves are still attached, and they contain lots of flavor! Celery leaves make excellent soup flavoring, "celery chips" (oiled, salted and baked at 300F until crispy), as well as pesto:
CELERY-LEAF PESTO RECIPE:
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
