Make Your Own Celery Salt

Before my friend Hugh chimes in to ridicule my new obsession as being one step removed from Lawry’s seasoned salt, I’d just like to hold my head high and say it: I love homemade celery salt. And it’s easy to make. Just grind up sea salt and celery seed with a mortar and pestle (about 1.5 parts sea salt to 1 part celery seed). It adds a great sort of grassy, savory, and slightly bitter note (in a good way) to all sorts of scenarios. The classic use is in a Bloody Mary, which I totally support, but I also love celery salt in tuna salad, tossed with green beans and butter, or sprinkled on gorgeous spring onions, which is what we did last night, and then grilled them with two thick-cut heritage Berkshire pork chops. (And while we’re at it, can we just take a moment to admire Mr. Foodinista’s grill marks on that chop???)
