Thereof, can you use celery seed in place of celery salt?
The celery seed used in celery salt is actually harvested from a celery relative called lovage, which has a stronger celery flavor. Celery stalks and leaves are fibrous and have much more bulk when compared to celery seed, which means that they may not be a good substitute in all applications.
Subsequently, question is, can I use celery seed instead of celery?
You can also substitute Ground Celery or Celery Seed in many dishes that call for fresh celery. ½ teaspoon of Ground Celery Seed equals 2 tablespoons minced celery tops. Substitutions for celery seed include dill seed or celery salt (reduce the salt elsewhere in the recipe).
Dill, sometimes referred to as dill weed, belongs to the same family as celery, chervil, and coriander. It has a similar flavor profile to celery seed to be an effective substitute. Combine pre-ground dill seed powder with salt, just like you would with celery seed and salt.
