Kun-choy, or Chinese celery is the stronger tasting variant of regular celery. It is high in fibre and contains plenty of vitamin B2 and C, calcium, and iron. It is available all year round. Although it can be eaten raw, it is preferred by most in a par-boiled state in salads. The leaves and stems of Kun-choy are used to flavour soups and stews, and removed just before serving. To preserve the leaves, store it in the coolest part of your refrigerator in an open plastic bag for not more than a week.
