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 exactly what I was looking for! I remember my mom always had celery salt in her spice collection growing up and it’s the one thing I’ve been missing! I always forget to pick some up when I’m at the store and never thought to make it myself until I started delving into growing my own produce, foraging for herbs in my backyard, dehydrating and making my own versions of things I usually get at the store! I altered my steps a little bit by adding more salt (because the celery flavor is strong and I needed more volume). I also took it one step further and ground it up with a mortar and pestle for a finer consistency. I only had one bunch of celery and used the leaves of the inner part as well, but still only yielded a couple of table spoons. At least I can make my own now when I run out! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!5 stars

    1. Hi Jimmy, the ratio is 1 cup of celery leaves to 1/8 teaspoon salt. Thank you! – Meggan

    1. Hi Maria, celery seed is more concentrated so that may reflect in the recipe. Hope this helps! – Meggan

  2. I just bury my dried veg in the salt; it’s called a salt vat. It’s how sailors used to keep their various meats and veg; but when it ran out they ate each other in order of command.
