Homemade Dried Celery Flakes

I love Penzy’s Spices dried celery flakes, and I pay about $3.50 for a small bag.

This week, in our CSA share, we received a large celery loaded with fresh dark leaves!

So, I trimmed off all the leaves and dried them in my counter top convection oven – 150-200 ° for about one hour. Yay, I got a big batch of dried celery flakes, and saved a little cash!
