This was one of those food-growing tricks that I was a little skeptical about in the beginning because it just seemed too easy but I was pleasantly surprised in the end at how simple AND effective it is!

First, buy celery (preferably organic)

Cut the bottom end off the celery (you know, the part you always throw out) and place it in a shallow dish of water (refridgerate the rest and use as you normally would):
