Herb Salt

We've recently discovered herb salts as savory, mouth-watering additions to recipes, and also as an ingenious way to prolong the life of fresh herbs. Salt preserves the herbs, and the herbs infuse the salts, making a flavor combo you can't resist. Try herb salts on meats, roasted vegetables, popcorn, garlic bread, and even in your cocktails! You'll want this new ingredient in your culinary arsenal.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups loosely packed, fresh herbs
  • ½ cup coarse salt

Directions:

  1. Wash and dry herbs thoroughly.
  2. Either pulse herbs and salt in a food processor (careful not to create a paste), or finely chop herbs and salt together with a knife.

Store your herb salt in a glass jar in the fridge. Shake periodically over 7 to 10 days while flavors blend. Herb salts will last about 6 months or longer in the refrigerator.

Blend ideas:

Italian blend: Basil, oregano, parsley, and salt
Summer blend: Dill, parsley, and salt
Thanksgiving blend: Sage, thyme, parsley, and salt
Salsa blend: Cilantro and salt
Bloody Mary blend: Celery leaves and salt
As you can see, the possibilities are endless!
