  • pairing knife
  • cutting board


  • 1-2 celery stalks


  • Rinse and dry celery stalks. Cut off ends (on the bottom end, cut where the celery starts to turn white).
  • Use a paring knife to shallowly carve into the base of the celery stalk and gently pull strings up the length of the celery until removed. Repeat until the stalk is fully peeled.



While we prefer to use a pairing knife (we love Calphalon's knives), a vegetable peeler may also be used.
