What is celery salt?

Celery salt is a seasoning made from ground celery seeds and salt. In this version, I dry out and grind celery leaves instead of seeds.

The amount of leaves per bunch of celery varies, but I was able to get it about 1 cup of loosely-packed celery leaves from one bunch celery. That yields about 2 tablespoons celery salt.

    This recipe is a lifesaver; how did I not think to look for this sooner?!?! I am on the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol and cannot have celery seed which is typlically used to make celery salt. I love to put celery salt in my SCD chicken soup (I make a batch every other week), but since also following AIP, I had to stop using the salt. So happy to add that extra little bit of flavor back into my diet. Thank you!

      I LOVE the lemon / cilantro idea…I may do lime to give it a little Mexican flavor. Yum!!! I’m a true believer in healing yourself through food. It’s restrictive, but the benefits thus far have been beyond worth it. A little creativity and you can make some incredible meals / snacks. Thanks again!

      Hi Crystal, I wasn’t familiar with APP but just did a quick google search. WOW, that’s one restrictive diet! I’m currently doing the Whole30, and I thought THAT was restrictive, but not even. Not compared to what you’re doing. I understand now that you can’t have seeds of any kind, hence no celery seeds, and I’m so delighted that you can have just a tiny bit more flavor in your soup with celery salt! Yay!!!! I also wanted to mention that I love to season chicken soup with fresh lemon juice and cilantro… might not be your thing, but I feel like you can use all the ideas you can get, LOL! I hope you don’t have to do this forever, but I’m sure it will help you with whatever struggles you are facing. I really think so many issues can be fixed if we just fix the food we are eating. Best of luck to you, and thanks for the sweet comment. Take care! -Meggan
