Celery is a plant of which the swollen leaf stems are eaten. They are crunchy and can be eaten raw or braised or to flavour stocks, soups and stews. The stems can be quite stringy and it is worth peeling the outside of each stem, taking off the ribs. The leaves make an excellent herb. The light green varieties are referred to as Pascal and the creamy white ones are called golden.
