How does one de-string celery??
Amanda is a co-founder of Food52.
Use a vegetable peeler to shave off the outside layer of the celery. This is only for the outer stalks. The inner stalks usually don't have strings.
Thanks, Amanda! Sometimes I see recipes that call just for the innermost pale green stalks, but I like to use the whole bunch ...
