Make Your Own Garlic Salt

Gold Post Medal for All Time! 523 Posts

Mix garlic powder, onion powder and salt to make your own blend.I really enjoy hot buttered garlic toast. I find the minced garlic spread overpowering. I even find garlic salt a bit too much. If I did like it, I wouldn't buy it. A minimum of a dollar for less than a penny's worth of salt with a little powdered garlic added. Ouch!


I make my own garlic salt for a fraction on the cost, and like it much better. To tone down the garlic powder, I add to it, an equal amount of onion powder. Then to that mixture, I add about a fourth amount of salt, e.g. 1 oz. garlic powder + 1 oz. onion powder + ½ oz. salt.

My mix tones down the garlic, adds a touch of onion, which I really like, too; plus, I control the amount of salt, which is important at any age. Savor the flavor, not the salt.

Do you think something like this would work for making celery salt?

It certainly would work for making celery salt. Whether you would choose to do so might depend on how often you use celery salt. A 4 oz. shaker of McCormick Celery Salt purchased at Walmart is $4.40. There are only two ingredients in McCormick Celery Salt, celery seed and salt.


Celery seed can be purchased online for as little as $4.00 a pound. (I didn't check the shipping cost). It has a shelf life of a year when stored in a cool, dry place. It might last longer once salt was added.
Here's one site:

Celery seed has a rather potent flavor. If you wanted something milder, you could dehydrate your own celery flakes, from thinly sliced celery stalks and the leaves, and add a bit of salt to them. McCormick adds sodium sulfite to their flakes as a preservative. Sulphites are added to wines as a preservative and tend to give some people headaches.

When I made potato salad, I added a small amount of celery seed (small because it's potent), and fresh, thinly sliced and cubed celery stalk. I added the stalk because of its crunchiness. A little of each so as not to overpower other flavors in the salad.

I don't like that much salt. I would use just about 14 of the amount. I like to mix 1 part each of
garlic powder, onion powder, ground up celery seed and Italian seasoning, also ground finer.


I use my motor and pestle and just eliminate the salt.
