Celery Salt


Make your own celery salt using leftover celery leaves! Using the microwave to dry them preserves the fresh taste and color. Plus, you can choose your favorite salt and avoid commercial additives. Store in an airtight shaker. Allow to sit for a week or two before using for optimal flavor.

  • ½ cup loosely-packed celery leaves, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • ¼ cup kosher salt


  1. Line a microwave-safe plate with a paper towel. Place celery leaves in a single layer on the paper towel; cover with a second paper towel. Microwave leaves, rearranging if needed, in 30-second intervals until dry and crispy. Uncover and cool, about 10 minutes.

  2. Measure out 2 tablespoons celery leaves and crumble with your fingers. Add to salt and mix well. Briefly pulse in a spice grinder if desired.

Cook's Note:

Substitute sea salt for the kosher salt if desired.

Do not microwave recycled paper towels, as they may catch on fire!

The celery leaves may be dried until crisp in an oven set at the lowest possible temperature instead of in a microwave.
