Celery *Imperfect*, (Aylmer, ON) - 1 Bunch
Local organic celery.
Not long ago, we had a very difficult time convincing local producers to grow local celery. "Have you seen the price of California celery!" they would say. We couldn't blame them for not wanting to compete with artificially priced imported products. But wait! Eight years ago, our friends the Reimers, in Aylmer, offered to give it a try. That first year was a serious and hilarious learning curve (three foot celery stalks were handed to us at one point!). Since then, we have honed our skills at celery growing and distribution and with the right growing conditions, the local celery season produces the most nutritious and flavourful celery anywhere! Albeit more fiberous (your GI tract screams THANK YOU!), it is amazing for all of your regular celery needs.
Here's a fun juice recipe to try!
