Description
Celery Seed is the dried fruit of the Apium graveolens which is related, but not identical, to the vegetable celery plant. The tiny brown seeds have a celery-like flavor and aroma.

Uses
Used in pickling, vegetables, salad dressings, breads, soups, and tomato items. Celery seed is used in celery salt, bouquet garni, pickling and curry spice blends, and the ethnic cuisines of Germany, Italy, Russia, and the Orient.

Origins
The principal sources of Celery Seed are India and China but France also produces a small quantity. Indian and Chinese Celery Seed are similar in appearance while the French variety is slightly darker. Indian Celery Seed has the strongest flavor and the French type is milder. Indian seed, because of its color and taste, is considered the premium seed. Chinese seed is smaller and has a slightly milder flavor.

Folklore
Celery actually dates back to "smallage," a wild, bitter marsh plant. The ancient Greeks and Romans used Celery for its medicinal purposes and there was a popular belief that it was an aphrodisiac. In the Middle Ages, Italian farmers began to cultivate "smallage." Once begun, this cultivation steadily improved the quality of the Celery and it has become a popular item. It is difficult to say when the seeds were first used as a spice. It was not until the early 19th Century that Celery Seeds began appearing in American cookbooks, usually in pickling recipes.
