Celery Seed

India / Apium graveolens

The tiny celery seed imparts a bitter flavor far beyond its size. An essential ingredient in everything from pickles to Worcestershire sauce to a great Bloody Mary, the bitter principle from a bit of celery seed is just the ticket to round out a flavor profile. Cajun and creole cooking rely on celery seed for their signature flavor- a blend of celery seed, mustard seed, bay leaf and thyme.
