Celery Leaves Salt
Updated: Sep 25
An easy way to make this seasoning is to infuse salt with celery leaves in the oven.
When growing your own celery in the veggie patch, you will find that the dark green leaves are tastier than the blanched ones from the supermarkets. It can be used to flavour a dish and spread over a plate as a finishing herb like parsley. Just after moving to Australia, I felt like making an old classic Bloody Caesar cocktail and... huhhhh where can I find celery salt and clamato juice - the essentials? Anywhere but in specialised shops online and at a higher cost. The Caesar version of the Bloody Mary cocktail is typically Canadian and much more popular over there. So I simply made my own celery-infused salt and substituted the clamato juice with tomato juice. And what else to season with this celery salt? Pretty much anything that celery tastes can go well with like soups for example. The commercial celery salt I was using in Québec was made with seeds and salt but with dried homegrown leaves, the taste is pretty much as good if not better!
