    Default Is this is a thing?

    I have never heard of it! I've never put celery in a salad either.

    Oh hell no girlfriend! This is not a thing.

    The strings stay on

    And I would peel carrots if they were going in a salad (though for something like soup I'd leave the skin on).

    I just thought - does she perhaps have a bowel condition that might make her unable to digest things like strings and seeds?

    My mum doesn't eat stringy veges or things with seeds (strawberries), or beans because they have 'shells'.

    Of course you remove the strings! I didn't realise people don't.

    As for carrots I only peel the ones I buy at the shops. The ones we grow ourselves I don't because I know what's gone in to the soil.

    Shakes head and wanders off.

    You come back here right now young lady!!! Why do you remove the strings? What if you're cooking it?

    I've never done it, but neither DD nor my sister will eat celery because it's stringy. Maybe they would this way?

    And I don't peel carrots or potatoes; don't de-seed cucumber or tomato. What a waste of time!
