Aren’t oven-dried celery leaves the prettiest things? I think so.
Pretty as they may be, however, it didn’t stop me crushing them up to make equally pretty (and delicious) celery salt.
There were orange and lemon salts too. An easy little trio of salts to give to friends this Christmas. I used Heidi’s recipes – here & here – and didn’t have to change a thing. I piled them into recycled spice bottles, and wrote little labels.
But right now, I’m enjoying them as they decorate my counter-top. And some leftover celery salt sprinkled over my soup at lunchtime was especially good.
