What do you think of celery salt?

In our local dialect, we call it 'ristepit', which you could translate as: rises the penis. Celery of course has a long history of being good for men. Even Art De Vany talks about it.

Any paleo perspectives on this? Is it just salt with an added flavour? Any benefits?

Thanks

That's interesting as celery juice is used as a replacement for saltpeter, which are nitrates used in curing meat also used in gunpowder. But saltpeter was used in foods to reduce sexual frustration in prisoners-it was thought to lower libido.

I'm not sure about that. Drug companies would rather sell expensive drugs and many doctors would rather "sell" prescriptions. Given the poor quality of US education and isolation within communities, traditional knowledge is rapidly lost. That said, I of course can't speak to the benefits or lack thereof.

Its more then awesome IMO. Didn't notice any aphrodisiac stuff. Celery is perfect replacement for the rice or other "safe starches". See http://goo.gl/FjJ2N

I used to L O V E celery salt. I grew up eating it on hot dogs (Mass.)

Now, though, I buy lots of fresh organic celery. I eat it in a salad frequently and every slow-cooked stew gets a heavy dose. If the stew goes on and on, because I keep adding new things, celery is added regularly.

The only problem I have with celery is that my 17-year-old grand-kid is always eating it so it's hard to keep it in the house. I'd hoped he would leave it alone as it aged in the slow cooker, but:

  • It doesn't get old because he keeps digging it out, and
  • If a piece happens to get old, he doesn't care and digs it out anyhow.

The funniest part is, he doesn't want to admit he loves these bone broths, so he's constantly digging things out and re-heating them with meat he cooks. I've caught him on several occasions spooning out broth as well, but he never, ever dishes out a bowl of the stew--he just steals choice bits and broth.

Darn kids.

Celery salt is just a mix of pulverized celery seed and salt. There's nothing wrong with using it, but I wouldn't think there would be enough celery in the celery salt to bring about the kind of benefits you might get from eating the actual vegetable.

If celery salt was that good at it, Viagra and Cialis would never have been made.
