Celery Salt is the ‘behind the curtain’ seasoning, this the not-so-secret ingredient in many recipes, the one that makes all the flavors pop and brings out the best notes in each of them. In the culinary world, celery seeds often lend a spicy, warm flavor and strong but pleasant aroma to salad dressings and sauces. This seasoning is a simple mix of ground celery seeds and salt. Modest but powerful.
Celery Salt is the perfect ingredient to add to Bloody Marys and is considered to be a hidden staple in American Cuisine, adding a taste of nostalgia to every dish. It is commonly used in mayo-based dishes like potato salad, egg, pasta, and tuna salads.
Celery Salt: Flavor Profile
Celery Salt brings to the table a floral, earthy and salty flavor to dishes. It is a taste that home cooks and chefs like to sneak into their preparations because it brings out the best in softer-flavored things. Celery seeds have a more pronounced flavor and aroma than fresh celery stalks; they are penetrating, a bit spicy and have subtle hints of nutmeg, citrus, and parsley.
Cooking with Celery Salt
This delicious seasoning gives a nice bite to salads, coleslaw, tomato-based soups and stews, and is a wonderful match with pork roast.
