Celery Seed (Apium Graveolens) is the tiny brown seed from the head of the celery plant. They add the flavor of fresh celery and can be used when ever celery would be called for. Use sparingly, over use of the seeds can result in a bitter flavor. Celery dates from the 17th century; it was developed from wild celery that was found in the salt marshes of Europe. They are often ground and mixed with other spices to make a seasoning used on meat before grilling.
The seeds can also be sprinkled on salads and cooked vegetables prior to serving. Whole and Ground Celery Seeds add a wonderful savory flavor to soups, stews, seafood, stuffing’s, sauces, soups, gravies, stews, tomato juice, and in vegetable, egg, and meat dishes.
Many of us grew up with Celery Seeds being used in Cole Slaw, Carrot Salad and pickles. Use the whole seed to add a wonderful texture and flavor to breads, and sauerkraut.
Take a look at our Celery Seed Cole Slaw & Friends Recipe, which uses Jicama and other extras to make a wonderfully delicious twist on the classic cole slaw.
