Have you ever wondered what to do with celery leaves, other than add them on top of the compost heap or throw them into the garbage bin?
By simply baking the celery leaves, you can create seasoning that is cheap, easy and quick to make which will enliven the taste of food particularly soups, pasta, risotto, eggs, fish, chicken and vegetables such as beetroot, sweet potato and tomato.
It’s a seasoning that should definitely be added to your spice and seasoning rack. It also adds another layer of taste to a Bloody Mary cocktail.
Instead of discarding celery leaves, bake them and add a little salt to make a very versatile seasoning.

Celery Leaves from a Bunch of Celery
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
Celery Leaves and Salt is all you require to make Celery Salt.
Spread leaves onto a baking tray being careful not to overlap the leaves.
I make a fresh batch of celery salt every-time I buy a bunch of celery and simply add to my current jar, creating a never-ending supply of this wonderfully flavoursome seasoning.
Bake the leaves until they are dehydrated and crisp, then allow to cool before crumbling and adding salt
Store Celery Salt in a jar with a sealed lid and it will keep for months in the pantry.
