Choose celery stalks that are firm and as dark as possible. Avoid limp celery stalks.
Celery is a natural diuretic.
Celery has a "salty" taste due to its natural organic sodium.
I once bought some organically grown celery straight from the organic farm. It was the darkest green celery I have ever seen in my life. The amount of chlorophyll in celery is directly related to how green the celery is. Anyway, the celery I bought was so green that one bite into the celery was all I could eat. The chlorophyll took over and I could feel the chlorophyll "biting" my tongue.
Unfortunately, most celery available today is lacking color. If possible, grow it yourself or buy it directly from an organic farm. You will be amazed at the difference in taste and ultimately nutrition. But if you do get really dark or darker green celery, do use less as a small amount goes a lot further.
