How to cut celery?
Celery is a long stalk with a pale green colour and the pack comes with long tightly packed stalks. The long stalks can be separated individually to break down or cut into small pieces.
Always make sure to buy fresh tightly packed stalks of celery. Take a knife, separate the long stalks and break them into small pieces.
If one is able to chop off the whole bunch into pieces, it is fine. The stalks are slightly hard and need some force to chop. It is better to cut them slowly and steadily.
Once cut, place the celery pieces in water to remove any impurities attached to them. Once washed well, take them out and use them for any purpose. Here, I will be using the washed pieces to make the juice.
