Celery - Not the Chinese Type.

Recommended Posts

The home grown Thai celery is fine, it comes in about an 800g pack and only costs about 65 B$

Often the Tops at KSK has imported western style celery, but I've gotten to like the "Chinese celery" instead for just about everything where you'd use western celery.  Atually has more celery-flavor in cooked dishes than the over-aged western celery stocked here. Be sure to include the leaves of Chinese celery in cooking.

 

One of my "base soups" for cooking casseroles before I moved here was Campbell's Cream of Celery.  Now I an make a passable sub using Chinese celery not western celery.

All those choices, Rimping, Sizzler etc. are in the wrong direction for me. Besides, Rimping imported veggies are often terrible, overpriced and inedible - Australian Parsnips, 180 B$ / KG, tiny little whizzened junk, enough wood in them to build a log cabin, and about as much taste. No, the celery I want is grown in Thailand and is sold under the Royal Project brand. Just seems not many places stock it, maybe it all goes to Bangkok?

No, it doesn't all go to Bangkok. But I doubt most people here can help you considering where you live. I've lived here 12 years and never been to San Patong. If you are willing to take a drive up to Hang Dong, you could go to the Doi Kham shop early in the day and buy it by the boatload and cheap.

 

BTW always ask for Doi Kham. Thais will have no idea what you mean when you ask for Royal Project.

Why not buy directly from he Royal project they have many sales locations.

Would you care to share where you purchase locally grown celery?  Anything near Santitham?

So, what about growing it here?  The Chinese mini-stalk variety grows well.  Why not the type you can buy in the West?
