Celery seed is an
herb that comes from the seed of the wild
celery plant called Lovage or Smallage. Most celery
seed comes from India. It is used to give a celery
flavoring to soups and stews, potato salad.
Whole seeds can be sprinkled into
a salad but mainly celery seeds are used in pickling
recipes, soups, salads like coleslaw. It is also
a nice addition to beef and pork dishes. Use sparingly.
