Flavored Celery

Let the celery suck up the flavor

I have been eating lots of vegetables lately like broccoli and celery and have noticed that ranch dressing makes it a lot easier to eat them raw. But then you have to get a bowl dirty to hold the ranch dressing and the celery isn't shaped like the bottom of the bowl so you invariably waste a lot of dressing. And I remembered how celery will suck up colored water so that you can have purple celery, and thought, what if you could have the celery suck up flavoring. So this idea is for flavored celery where you have the cut celery stalks suck up flavored water.

       Seriously, you eat rabbit food ... ?

       You can make pretty much any vegetable taste an awful lot better by feeding it to a pig first. I believe the French were the first to realize this.

       It works for beef too ... and has the benefit for moralists that cows are entirely vegetarian.

       If will it suck up booze, you can do celery cocktails.

       [link] We invented the best (booziest) way to eat celery up here in the frozen north long ago. I'd advise visiting during the warm season, aka, July.

       I know this is a completely stupid point, but celery is already flavoured.   

       Is this a good time to do the "celery is an aphrodisiac" joke yet?

       Buy a dozen food coloring colors, and figure how to inject them into celery. try the flavors later.   

       Celery is good with peanut butter.

       //good with peanut butter//.. and cheese.   

       [+] but it wouldn't work properly for salad dressing, most which flavour is in fat and oils, which wouldn't capilliarate.

       Mmmm, Caesars. I miss them.   

       Roll your flavours into a Play dough like foodstuff then plonk it into the "U" of the celery. I also agree with [popbottle] able the merits of a smear of peanut butter in celery

       Anything which takes more calories to consume than you get out of it is like, anti-food. That stuff could kill you.   

       I thought *flavours* were not allowed here...but I like the idea, sort of...Actually, celery itself is very flavourful.

       Maybe using high pressure?

       //I thought *flavours* were not allowed here//   

       The idea is a technique to apply the flavor, rather than the flavor itself.   

       As far as the idea, I'm betting the result would have a very short shelf life, and the number of flavors you could actually get uptake on would be limited, but it should be at least somewhat feasible.

       My butler has a brilliant celery-based hangover recipe. You take two sticks of celery, chop them finely, and place them in a cup of cold water. Meanwhile, mix together 1 cup of tomato juice, 1/2 cup of vodka, and a dash of Tabasco, in a tall glass over ice. Drink the tomato juice/vodka/Tabasco mix. Strain and discard the celery.

       [MechE] Thanks for the clarification. Celery sucking flavours should contain chocolate, chili, turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, wait, I want a Thanksgiving dinner flavour then.
