Isn’t it interesting how quickly a “food trend” comes about? The avocado market skyrocketed in demand ever since Los Angeles decided “Avocado Toast” would be the next big thing. People all over the country jumped on the bandwagon, and now you can go just about anywhere and order deluxe avocado toast with all kinds of bells and whistles.
The same trend seems to have come along with celery as of late. You don’t often watch people jump when they see celery. Yes, many people cook with it as it is a fantastic basein many dishes, but it isn’t a vegetable that many enjoy raw, fresh off the stalk. Perhaps you’ve tried to get your kiddos to enjoy celery sticks with peanut butter – been there, done that. But let’s be honest – it’s usually not the celery they like, but the extra peanut butter to cover up the “greenie” taste.
