McCormick Whole Celery Seed, 0.95 oz

Celery seed is the dried seed of a wild variety of celery called smallage which is not the vegetable we are all familiar with. These seeds are brown in color and have a warm, earthy, celery-like flavor and aroma that enhance seafood, salads, dressings and brines. McCormick Celery Seed is hand-selected for distinct celery flavor and mild crunch. Use celery seed to flavor cucumbers during the pickling process as well as in preparing relishes and chutneys. Grilling season is a great time to have a jar of celery seed on hand. Add it to coleslaw, potato salad or macaroni salad, barbecue sauce, and spice rubs for grilled or smoked meats. The pungent, somewhat bitter flavor of celery seed goes a long way, so start with a pinch.
