How to store

How to store: Store the garlic bread in the fridge for 1 day, or in the freezer for 1 month. Defrost and place in the hot oven to get it nice and crisp again. You can make the celery butter ahead. Keep it in the fridge for up to 1 week, and in the freezer for up to 3 months.  


Leftovers: Use your celery butter in stir fry, or in pasta. To use in pasta, add a few tablespoons of celery butter in a frying pan and cook for 5 minutes. Add al dente pasta to the pan, along with some of the pasta water. Toss to coat and serve.
