Choosing celery to freeze: Select crisp, tender stalks, free from coarse strings.
Pull the stalks of celery apart; otherwise you won't be able to get the trapped dirt out. Wash the celery thoroughly under running water.
Trim and cut stalks into l-inch lengths.
At 3 minutes, remove the celery, drain and quickly immerse it in ice water.
Allow it to cool for about 5 minutes then, drain it.
Package the celery in a vacuum freezer bag or a Ziploc bag, excluding as much air as you can (a straw helps, or the new vacuum bags).
That's it; just pop it into your freezer. If your removed almost all the air, it should be good for a year or so.
