Celery and Potato Soup




Save The Celery Leaves!

Please save the celery leaves, they are great chopped up and added to soups. Also, don't discard the tiny part of the celery stalks, these chop up great and can be added to Tuna and Chicken Salads!

Celery is a good source of vitamin A, followed by Choline, vitamin C, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid. There are trace amounts of Riboflavin, vitamin B6, Betaine, Folate, and vitamin K. In the mineral department, celery is rich in Potassium, Calcium, Magnesium, and Phosphorus. There are trace amounts of Iron, Selenium, Zinc, Manganese, and Fluoride. Celery contains Omega-6 fatty acids. Dehydrated celery is fantastic re-hydrated – it plumps up really well and you can't tell the difference from fresh!

Make Your Own Celery Salt!

Celery salt is great for stews and soups too. You can easily make your own celery salt (add equal parts of salt and celery) and then get out your grinder/coffee mill.

Have you ever tried celery with peanut butter?

Sounds odd, I know, but it tastes delicious!

How to Dehydrate Celery

  1. Wash and slice fresh celery into 1/8" thick slices, a mandoline does a fine job of this – just watch your fingers please!
  2. Arrange on your food dehydrator trays, making sure the celery slices don't touch
  3. Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature between 125°F and 135°F (or per your food dehydrator's instructions).
  • Dehydrated celery will be leathery when fully dried. It reminds me of tiny seahorses for some strange reason ... :-)
  • Drying time: between 3-10 hours.
  • Please remember to rotate your trays for even drying.
