We bought some gorgeous celery from the farmers market with bushels of leaves leftover post stuffing...

Any ideas of what we can do with it? Is it edible?

Heidi Swanson's celery salt from 101 Cookbooks. It's a brilliant use of the leaves, and it's delicious. http://www.101cookbooks...

Wow, I've never liked celery salt. But now I simply must try this, as I love celery leaves! Thank you so much for posting this. ;o)

Wonderful chopped like any dark, flavorful, leafy herb in stews and soups, especially ragus and similar hearty dishes. Also consider thirshfelds amazing Shredded Pork with Chinese Celery Lo Mein. When you can't get Chinese celery, chop a few stalks of regular celery and all of those gorgeous leaves to use instead. And of course, use shredded dark turkey meat instead of the pork, for a wonderful, different post-Thanksgiving meal. http://www.food52.com/recipes... As you'll see from the comments to this recipe, I've made it many times. We love it!! Add a carrot, cut into matchsticks, towards the beginning for a touch more color. ;o)
