A sincere thanks yall for this celery seed info. You can bet the farm that my next trip to the store will result in a jar of celery seeds. And, I will be saving my celery salt for use on a CSD.
I think CS’s could well be the missing link in Shanghai Jimmy’s chili! Lotsa folks have tried to recreat his recipe but many said there was just something missing. The chopped celery, offered as an optional topping, is the bigest clue to some sort of celery seasoning in the chili.
Hmm, aphrodisiac? How about some of these seeds on a raw oyster? [;)]
