This flavorful herb salt really packs a punch. It is super easy to throw together, and can be made with a number of different herb combinations. You can’t mess it up!
- 1/2 heaping cup Fresh Lemon Thyme Leaves
- 1/2 heaping cup Fresh Rosemary Leaves
- 3 Garlic Cloves, roughly chopped
- 1/2 cup Coarse Sea Salt
- Herbs: Wash the herbs and pat dry with a towel. Gently remove the herbs from the stems.
- Pulse: To a food processor, add the herbs, garlic and salt and pulse until you have a coarse grind. (Don’t pulse too long, or you will end up with a paste).
- Refrigerate: Add the salt mixture to a glass jar, with a tight fitting lid, and store in the refrigerator. (Should last at least 6 months or longer).
- How to use: Use on pretty much anything!
- Herbs: To remove the thyme from the stem, place your pointer finger and thumb at the top of the stem, and firmly slide the leaves down the woody stem. The leaves should easily come off. To strip the rosemary leaves from the stem, pull the needles in the opposite direction from which they grow and they should easily slide off the stalk. Discard the stems.
- Equipment: Use a food processor because it makes the prep time so easy. It takes just minutes to whip up. However, if you don’t have one, just use a sharp knife and cutting board.
