Hi, my name is Chef Maria Sparks from Cork and Platter, and today I'm gonna tell you how to prepare celery seed. So, what I like to do is I like to actually make my own little batch with celery seeds and a mixture of other things. But, first, let me tell you a little bit about celery seed. It actually comes from celery. When you're allow to, keep the celery to continue to grow , and it grows a little stalk and a flower on the top, and once you let that dry out and get brown and brittle, you snap it off, you shake it, and all the celery seed falls out. So, then I like to take those seeds, and I like to make my own little mixture. It's kind of a fun thing I like to give for Christmas, and you can use it for tea. You can use it for pickling, but the most important thing to know is how to make your mixture, and I have a little formula called one-two-three-four. And, so, I use one tablespoon of clove, two tablespoons of allspice, three tablespoons of coriander seed, and four tablespoons of our celery seed. Mix it all together, and then I just package it in little jars, or in little bags, and I give them to my friends as gifts, and it makes perfect, perfect cups of tea on a nice cold day, or when you're not feeling well. Or, I can make it with my pickling spice and my concoction for cucumbers.
