Beau Monde Seasoning - Closer to the Real Thing!
photo by COOKGIRl
- Ready In:
2 1/2 Ounces
- 2 tablespoons onion powder
- 2 tablespoons celery salt
- 1 tablespoon caster sugar or 1 tablespoon icing sugar
- Toss it in a jar with about 6 - 10 grains of rice if you live in a humid environment and plan on opening and shutting the jar a few times over a couple of months. Shake it up good, that's pretty much it.
- Note: Please review this recipe as it pains me to see the weird mixes for Beau Monde that are passing on the net!
thie is great. I however like a little lighter flavor of celery leaves. I grow my own. harvest all the leaves from one whole celery, then place on a cookie sheet put in the oven on 200 for 4 minutes turn off oven and let dry for 3-4 days. when bone dry place in plastic bag then crush till fine. then use in soups,salads great flavor.
I was down to my last teaspoon of Beau Monde seasoning which had been kept in the freezer for several years. It is a key ingredient in a dip made for fresh veggies and we all love it. Made a special trip to larger grocery store in another town but to no avail. Finally Googled it and behold, this recipe. Tasted a bit of the one in my freezer and this....to me there was no difference. Very grateful to find something using ingredients from my spice rack!!! Thanks
Thank God for the correct recipe. I can usually find Beau Monde, but I use it every day and this time I couldn't get it. When I did a search, I found things that look more like pumpkin pie spice. Since I have the actual seasoning, I know what is in it. I just didn't have the proportions. Now I. Do. :)

I don't know how this compares to the original since I've never used Beau Monde. I can tell you though that this is a super seasoning blend. I didn't have celery salt. I used one tablespoon of kosher salt mixed with 1.5 teaspoons of celery seed instead. I pulsed everything very quickly in my coffee grinder to blend. Great stuff! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Born in Macon Georgia. Met a wonderful British lady while playing spades one day..and the rest is history! Hope to get back to Georgia soon -- I miss being able to buy simple things like Crisco (or any kind for that matter!) shortening, Corn Meal, SNOW CRAB!!! I love "smoke cooking", that's not so easy over here either! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
