Celery Seed is the dried fruit of the plant Apium graveolens, a wild variety of common celery. These small, brownish-green seeds have a flavour similar to celery combined with fennel or anise. Celery seed is particularly useful when you want to add a celery flavour to a cooked dish when the crispy crunch of the actual vegetable is undesired.
