How to Make Lemon Herb Salt

If you enjoy recipes from me, your friendly neighborhood Kitchen Witch, then you'll be familiar with my Lemon Herb Salt because, like Emeril with his Essence, I use this beautiful salt in many of my dishes.


































Not only does it add incredible flavour, it looks just beautiful all done up in a jar - making it an inexpensive, and impressive hostess gift over the holiday season.

And making it is really just as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Lemon Herb Salt

Prep Time: 60 minutes
Yield: 1/2 cup seasoned salt

Ingredients   
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 sprig each fresh rosemary, thyme, sage, parsley (can also add lavender if you have it)
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup coarse sea salt
Directions
  1. Dry the herbs and zest slightly by leaving them on the counter for an hour or two.
  2. In a small spice or coffee grinder, pulse salt with lemon zest, dried herbs, and pepper until salt forms smaller crystals and mixture is blended, about 30 seconds.
  3. Pack into glass jars with tight-fitting lids and store in a cool, dark place for up to 2 months. Attach a ribbon and gift tag with serving ideas.

  1. This sounds like an excellent 'fresh' spice mix. But, please, tell me - does the lemon zest and fresh herbs have to be completely dried before closing up the jar to store?
