Blogging from A to Z Challenge Day 3:  "C" 

I'm really tired... so this one might be lame and short.  (You have been warned.)

I have one food that I very decidedly dislike—celery.  Some times I wish I could like celery.. and then I remember what it tastes like, and I'm become content again with the fact that not liking it, means not having to taste it.  It's one of those foods that you really should try to like.  It takes more calories to eat celery than there are calories in celery!   I've tried to like it... with buffalo wings, with veggie wraps, with peanut butter and raisins, in soup, in tuna and chicken salad, but alas, I still don't like it.  Anyone know any ways to make celery taste like something other than celery??  


  1. Hey! So, do you think it is the taste or the crunch you don't like? This is hard for me because I actually really, really love celery. Which is probably equally odd because I almost think of it as a tasteless food, but it makes my tongue tingle a little and so I dig it.

    If it is the texture, cook it up. If it is the taste, you are probably destined to avoid it forever more! I tried blending a celery juice because it was in this Chinese medicine book, and that was actually bitter and nasty, so maybe you are just sensitive to that in its original state more than most....

    But compared to PB mayo and pickles, it seems like it should stand a chance!! Oooh ... Maybe that's the trick. Pickled celery!?!

    Found you through A to Z!

  2. I DESPISE celery. I'm with you. Everyone has told me a myriad of ways to make it better, but its just funky. Stick to your guns!

  3. Ahh, doesn't celery taste like...water and a bit of salt? At least, that's what I always think of it tasting like when I eat it. Honestly though, the texture isn't my favorite thing and extra watery pieces kind of make me gag.

    All in all, I completely understand ;)

  4. Maybe blended in a smoothy with other ingredients you won't be able to taste it.
