Celery seed is a spice that isn't always featured in the herb and spice rack but if you have some, it can make an excellent addition to a number of dishes.


  1. Be aware that celery seed has a very strong taste. Treat it like highly concentrated celery.
  2. Use celery seeds in vegetable dishes and sauces. Give these dishes a touch of celery flavor with the addition of a few seeds.
  3. Use celery seed in pickles, mustard, and chutneys. Toss in a few seeds when preparing the pickles or chutney.
  4. Use celery seed on homemade bread or bread rolls. Use it to both decorate and flavor the bread.
  5. Add to soups and stews. The celery seed will give an oomph of celery flavor. Try them sprinkled over thick soup such as chowder.
  6. Add to fish dishes. For strong flavored fish, celery seeds can make an interesting, tasty addition to the marinade or poaching sauce.

    • Steep for 10-20 minutes.
    • Strain and drink.
