Homemade Celery Spice

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Shazzie

I don't always want the saltiness of celery salt and I battle to find celery seeds, so I thought this recipe was a useful keeper! Edited 24 July 2008 : I didn't want to make this recipe public until I had tried it myself - This makes a really fragrant, flavoursome celery spice! A great, and simple, way to use up all your celery leaves.

An interesting way to use celery leaves, at least from my point of view! Set my oven to 395°F & went from there, & this little goodie makes a nice addition to my spice rack! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
