Any of your favorite cooking herbs can be used for culinary purposes, but Rosemary and Lavender salt is especially nice added to a soothing hot water foot or bath soak as well. Refer to the links below for other flavored salts. The herbal salts make great gifts, just add a decorative ribbon, label and you have a quick and simple gift item that you can prepare at any time of the year. If you make a variety of flavored salts, they make a very nice addition to a gift basket, either as a culinary gift or a luxury bath kit.
Scarborough Faire Herb Salt
1 C. Sea Salt (I used Himalayan Pink-medium grind)
1 or 2 sprigs each; fresh Rosemary, Sage, Thyme and Parsley (no moisture)
Mason Jar (large enough to hold one cup)
Jar Funnel (optional
Use Clean, Dry, sterilize jars. Cut the herbs fresh from the plants. Allow to air dry if moistened from dew, rain or snow or from rinsing. Fill the jar 1/2 way with salt. Place a sprig of each herb on top of the salt, then cover with remaining salt. Place the lid on the jar and set aside in the pantry for at least 2 weeks to allow the fragrance and flavors to blend with the salt. You can remove the sprigs if you choose or leave in the jar of salt and top off with salt as you use the flavored salt.
Do not discard the herb sprigs, strip the leaves and place in a jar to use in cooking or fragrant crafts.
Uses: Culinary. Use as you would any salt to flavor meats or vegetables.
Uses: Non-Culinary: Use 2 or 3 Tablespoons in hot foot or bath water for a soothing soak.
