- 1 bunch celery (at least)
- Clean and cut the ends off the stalks.
- Slice celery crossways cutting slices at about 1/4 inch thick.
- Place evenly on dehydrator drying racks.
- Set dehydrator at 125 degrees F and run it for about 10 hours. You can set the thermostat a little lower if you like and run it for 12 hours. When the celery is dry it should snap in half easily and you will have a bunch of little pieces,
- Use a chopper, spice grinder, or blender to grind to a fine powder. Let your chopper run for several minutes until you no longer hear pieces clicking around inside the canister.
- Use your celery powder to help boost the flavor of any dish that you are making when you don't want to add more salt, onion powder or garlic powder.
- One thing to remember: you are making a powder, so be sure to seal the lid well. Also make sure the dust has settled inside the chopper before removing the lid.
- After dehydrating 1 bunch of celery, I ended up with a whopping 2 ounces of celery powder.
- Celery powder is also a natural source of sodium nitrate and can be used as a healthy preservative.
