Homemade herb salt – perfect for gifting!
As promised I want to share another of my little DIY projects in the homemade foodie gift category – this herb salt is incredibly easy to make, so pretty and incredibly fragrant and flavorful! I cannot take any credit for this idea as I have seen it on so many blogs (make sure to check out Linda Lomelino’s homemade gifts, she is amazing!), but I just had to make my own version as well. I chose to keep it super simple and just use what I already had in my cupboards, but you can get creative and add garlic, grated lemon peel etc. as well – it might need to be dried in the oven if you use “wet” ingredients though.
I know this is super last minute, but it takes no time to make and I am thinking that many of you already have the ingredients available – you can always stick to only using one kind of fresh herbs and then supplement with some dry ones.
Ingredients – yields 4 small jars:
1 cup sea salt flakes
1 cup fresh herbs – I used a mix of basil, thyme, rosemary and oregano
Simply add the herbs to a food processor and pulse until they are finely chopped, then add the salt and pulse until everything is well mixed. Pour the herb salt onto a pan lined with baking paper and set it aside to dry overnight. Pour the herb salt into little jars and it is ready to be used – or gifted ❤︎
