What do I do with these spices?

I have had something called Savory in one of my spice racks for a while and was wondering what it's used for. Any ideas? Another one I don't even use is celery seed and celery salt. What's that used for? Thanks in advance.

Dina

Dina,

Everyone raves over my deviled eggs. My secret? Along with Miracle Whip and yellow mustard, I add celery seed. Add enough to flavor it, but not too much or it could be bitter. As far as the savory, I'm not sure what it is. I would smell it and see what it is similar to and play it by ear. I would assume you can use celery salt on anything you wanted to add salt and the flavor of celery to (maybe macaroni salad, potato salad, etc).

:) Barbara

Savory is the dried leaves of the herb Satureja hortensis. The brownish-green leaves are fragrantly aromatic, resembling that of Thyme.

Savory, used in vegetables, beans, lentils, bouquet garni, eggs, stuffings, condiments, hamburger, gravy, soup mixes, and in spice blends

Dina, have you ever made nuts and bolts? Celery salt is a crucial ingredient in the spice blend for that. It is also what you rim your glass with when you pour a Caesar or Bloody Mary...mmmmmmm! Celery seed is good in stuffing for a chicken...and I don't use savory much but a friend suggests you use it on your fish. Let me know if you want to try out the nuts and bolts recipe and I will post it.

Good call on the Ceasar Alix! And yes I have to agree with the Nuts and Bolts as well! As for the Savory Dina, ,I often put it in my stews, and a tad with my roasts when they are in the slow cooker. Savory, along with Tarragon are good on Pork Chops.

Usually on the sides of the spice/herb jars there is a list of what they blend nicely with. Also, type in your spice followed by a comma, and then type in recipe (on google) and recipes will pop up for you to go by. Except when you type in savory be sure and say savory herb, recipe as it will help in distinguishing a search for just "savory" dishes.

Thanks for all of your tips, you all. Hand over the nuts and bolts recipe, Alix. I have a few unscrewed screws to tighten up. I love the idea of bloody mary drinks...YUMMY... but what's in the Caesar drink? Similar, I hope. I love anything with tomato or veggie juice.

Dina
