Celery and fennel are versatile, cost-effective ways to bring flavor to your menu. Use this quick guide to make the most of these powerhouse ingredients:
- Celery and fennel have similar textures but very different flavors, so they’re not interchangeable. Keep this in mind when deciding which is best for a particular recipe.
- Fennel isn’t fussy—its quality is extremely consistent. This means less waste.
- The inner stalks of celery are more tender and milder in flavor than the outer stalks.
- Celery leaves can be chopped and used like any fresh herb.
