A few days ago I harvested some fresh herbs (rosemary, basil, parsley, sage, thyme, lovage and oregano) from the garden and made homemade fresh herb salt. The house was smelling so heavenly. The herb salt can be used to season almost anything, from roasts, breads, sauces, etc. The sky is the limit.

WHAT you’ll need to make homemade herb salt recipe

  • 500 g (1.1 lbs) sea salt
  • 100 g (3.5 oz) fresh herbs, (I’ve used rosemary, basil, parsley, sage, thyme, lovage and oregano)

How to make herbed salt

Begin by washing fresh herbs. Then shake off excess water. Put the washed fresh herbs on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and let dry overnight. Next remove the stems and chop the leaves in a vegetable chopper, then mix with salt. Transfer the salt mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or something similar and let dry overnight or until the salt is completely dry. Keep stirring in between. Pack in glasses and enjoy.

  • If where you’re is cold, or you’re to impatient to let the salt dry overnight, feel free to use the oven to dry the salt, with the door slightly open. Simply put the baking sheet or casserole dish with salt in the oven preheated to 50 °C (122 °F) . Keep turning the salt in between until its completely dry, this takes around an hour.
