Make your own flavored salt!
Homemade rosemary salt is easier to make than you think – and way less expensive than those jars at the gourmet shop!
You can make a large batch and pack the rosemary salt in pretty jars to give as gifts!
It’s delicious sprinkled on salads – especially caprese salad! Sprinkle on roasted potatoes and vegetables. Enjoy with grilled meats, fish and poultry. Add some to olive oil for dipping bread and raw veggies!
You need to dry out the rosemary before mixing with the salt. You can do this by frying it or drying it in the microwave! Once it’s dried, the leaves will easily come off the stem. Combine the leaves with some coarse salt in your food processor, blender or chopper and process to combine.
Can I use the dried rosemary from my spice cabinet?
A great question! (Thanks J.!) You can see the difference in the photo below, dried rosemary leaves from my spice cabinet – vs – fresh rosemary which I dried in the microwave. The small twiggy leaves from my spice cabinet probably would crumble into the salt, but the freshly dried rosemary leaves are much more tasty, fragrant and pretty.
