Celery seeds are a warming and slightly bitter spice typically used in culinary dishes, although they are also employed in folk herbalism. Our celery seed powder is milled from organic Apium graveolens seeds. The powder can be extracted, infused, or sprinkled sparingly as a seasoning to marinades, pickles, beverage blends, and spice mixes.

The Greeks and Romans called it "smallage" and harvested it in the wild for its medicinal properties. The Romans used it more for cooking. When it was finally grown and harvested in the middle ages it was found to be a wonderful vegetable to add to the dinner table. It was not until the 19th century that the seeds were used as a spice in recipes and pickling. It was associated with funerals and bad luck, and woven garlands of wild celery were often found in Egyptian tombs. The celery used in herbal medicine is a close relative of the celery you can buy in market. The fruit or "seed" is grayish green to brown with a characteristic, slightly bitter, spicy taste. Too much celery seed can overpower a dish, whereas a little brings out flavors in other foods. Celery seed is used in pickles, casseroles, and Bloody Mary’s.

Apium graveolens is a member of the Apiaceae family.
