Celery is a green vegetable. Usually the long crunchy stalks are eaten, but people also eat the leaves and main root. Celery is very low in Calories, high in water, and high in salt.

Celery stalks have long 'strings' in them which many people find unpleasant. The strings can be wholly or partly removed before cooking - snap the bottom end of the celery and a small portion of the strings will be visible. Just grab them one at a time and pull firmly upwards and they'll come out. Thinly slicing celery crosswise is a less-wasteful way to deal with this annoyance.

Celery can be braised, made into soup or cooked as a vegetable in its own right.

The seeds are considered a spice.
