Recipe tips:

  • Yield: 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.
  • Store-bought: 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.

  1. This is sooo easy! I get very sick from MSG they put into spices, so I have been making my own. But never saw this recipe before. I am going to make this for sure. I love this thank you so much for sharing!5 stars

    1. Hi George, I don’t see why not! I haven’t tried it myself, but I believe if you are able to dehydrate the stems well enough that they will grind and combine with the salt, it should work. – Meggan

  2. When the celery leaves are finished in the oven, about how much does that measure? I have some leaves that are already dry, so am wondering how much to use.

    This recipe is a great way to use every part of the plant, thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Mariah! If you do 1 cup loosely packed fresh celery leaves, dry them, and add 1/8 teaspoon salt and grind it all together, you will have about 2 tablespoons of celery salt. It’s hidden in the post somewhere, I need to get that info into the recipe card so people can see it! Thank you! -Meggan

  3. Guess what I did before reading about how to make your own celery salt? I roasted a whole bunch of celery in the oven until it dried out and crunched it up in a plastic bag,thinking that’s how you make celery salt. I never thought it’s made from seeds. Do you think it’s okay to still use it o give food that great taste? I especially like celery salt on french fries. Thanks for your post. Now I have a better understanding about Celery salt.

  4. 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!

    1. 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

    2. 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!

    1. Hi Michele, I would think at LEAST 6 months, same as a dried herb. I hope you love it! Thank you!

  5. I am making this for my Thanksgiving Bloody Mary Bar!  Love homemade anything and this is super clever!5 stars

    1. Things I need in my life this second include a Bloody Mary Bar. Seriously, what a great idea! Thanks for your kind words, it is surprisingly easy (and yes, clever!) to make your own celery salt. Who knew? ;) Take care and thank you so much!
