Plant Family: Apiaceae – Celery Family Apiacea is a major plant family which includes celery, carrot, parsley, dill, cilantro and cumin to name just a few.
Celery is an important food source of conventional antioxidant nutrients, including vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese. But its “claim to fame” in terms of antioxidant nutrients may very well be its phytonutrients. Many of these phytonutrients fall into the category of phenolic antioxidants and have been shown to provide anti-inflammatory benefits as well.
1/2 pound celery, chopped, about 2 cups
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup diced potato
6 tablespoons butter
4 cups turkey or chicken stock
1/2 to 1 cups milk (optional)
About 1 teaspoons dill weed – 2 teaspoons for fresh dill
2 1/2 tablespoons cream
Although over 100 chemicals have been identified, the main components of the essential oil are citral (neral and geranial), citronellal, linalool, geraniol and β-caryophyllene-oxide.
Lemon balm’s lemony flavor and aroma are due largely to citral and citronellal, although other phytochemicals, including geraniol (which is rose-scented) and linalool (which is lavender-scented) also contribute to lemon balm’s scent.
Lemon balm is high in flavonoids, which can have an antioxidant effect. Other phytochemicals in lemon balm which may provide antioxidant activity include phenolic acids, terpenes, rosmarinic acid and caffeic acids. Lemon balm also contains tannins, which are astringent and contribute to lemon balm’s antiviral effects.
