Culinary Notes :
The base of celery salt seasoning is the celery seeds itself. Celery seeds are mainly produced in India and China. Celery Seed doesn’t actually come from the same celery plant that we eat, it is a derivative of a domesticated wild plant know as ‘smallage’. It is often used in soups, salad dressings, and pickling. Celery seeds have been used as medicine for thousands of years in the Eastern world. During ancient times, Indian Ayurvedic medicine used celery seed to treat colds, flu, water retention, poor digestion, different types of arthritis, and certain diseases of the liver and spleen. It is still widely used today for treating ailments such as arthritis and gout, helping reduce muscle spasms, calming the nerves, reducing inflammation and lowering blood pressure. The celery seeds are then combines with sea salt, black pepper, garlic, onions, sage, oregano and thyme to make a versatile season with a mild celery like flavour.
