Celery Salt has long held a position on standard spice racks, but its origins are difficult to determine. According to some popular theories, the combination of celery’s naturally rich supply of nitrate with sodium was a particularly effective, and tasty, method for preserving meat. Another idea posits that celery seed, on its own, is a flavor enhancer, so combining it with salt helped to lower sodium intake before low-sodium diets were commonplace.
Tips From Our Kitchen
Celery Salt is ubiquitous around the rim of a Bloody Mary, and that’s because it loves tomato. Sprinkle some across freshly-sliced tomato on a thick, crusty bread for a simple but delicious open-faced summer sandwich. Use it to draw out the flavors in delicate foods, like crab cakes or lobster rolls. It goes beautifully in potato and macaroni salad, and adds a salty-herbaceous kick to freshly buttered corn on the cob. Toss over diced potatoes and bake. It is a standard in sausage making, but would be equally at home in a turkey burger or some meatballs. Use as a finishing salt in Asian stir-fries, stir into vinaigrettes with tarragon, and rub with black pepper over an entire chicken before roasting.
