Celery seeds are the tiny fruits of the common garden vegetable most people are familiar with. Powdered celery seed is commonly called celery salt, largely because it is used as a flavor enhancer just like salt is. Although the seeds have a strong, bitter taste, celery seed powder adds a pleasant flavor to a wide variety of food. In fact, in combination with cardamom, nutmeg, paprika, ginger and other spices, the ground seed is a starring ingredient in Old Bay seasoning.


Background: The English word celery is from celeri, a French word derived from an ancient Greek word. The plant is mentioned as selinon in Homer's Odyssey (850 BC.)
Introduced to the Americas in the 17th century, there were a handful of cultivated US varieties listed in use there by 1806.

 Whole and ground seed may be added to a variety of foods.
