Celery Seeds Whole
Celery seeds have a mildly spicy and slightly bitter taste with aroma and flavor notes similar to fennel. Whole seeds are added to pickling brines, soups, and breads. Although it takes more than half a million seeds to equal a pound, the flavor in just a handful of seeds goes a long way in cooking. The celery used in herbal medicine is a close relative of the celery you can buy in the 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. Seldom used in extract or capsule form.
