Origin & History
Believe it or not, Celery Seeds aren’t harvested from the same plants that grow commercial celery. Instead, they are picked from an Asian plant called “Smallage” or “Wild Celery.” These seeds have a very strong celery taste and are perfect for recipes that don’t require full stalks of celery but could benefit from the flavour.
Celery seeds pair well with fresh or brined vegetables and they can be used to flavor a number of sauces. This ingredient is not very common in European kitchens, but it is widely used in Cajun and Indian cuisines.
