I brought home some bacon, fried it up in a pan. Did anyone get the beat and start singing the next line in the song? No? Just me, then. Anyway, as I waited for my toast to toast, butter knife laden with Miracle Whip in my hand and slather-ready, I pondered the small container of celery salt standing near my soon to be sandwich.
Innocuous looking in its container and pretty much just dried celery mixed with salt, celery salt is a power house of yummy goodness. Oh, sure, blah blah salt is bad for you. And sure, celery salt is most famously used in Bloody Mary cocktails, but it’s also good in deviled eggs, in potato salad, on steaks, and of course on BLT’s. And a little dash of celery salt will make your cream of tomato soup zip to life.
Few people know this, but celery salt will also enhance your sex life, grow hair on balding heads, and whiten your teeth. Okay, it won’t do any of that, but it IS darned good on a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, and that’s nothing to sneeze at.
The pic is of Danbury Mint’s celery salt container in their Hummel spice jar collection. It’s cute, huh? And yes, I found the pic on eBay. And no, I didn’t buy it and stick it in my closet. And um, yes, I did think about it.
