Wild Garlic Salt Recipe

Wild Garlic Salt Recipe

I love anything wild garlic and this wild garlic salt recipe made with just 2 ingredients: fresh wild garlic leaves, and coarse salt is such a great way to preserve wild garlic. 

  • It’s easy to make
  • It tastes and smells amazing, with an intense garlicky flavor.
  • It makes great Easter or anytime gifts from the kitchen for your family and friends.
  • Plus you can use it to season almost anything.

For this recipe, I have blended wild garlic leaves together with the salt. Then dried the salt in the oven just to speed up the drying process, since it was a cloudy and rainy day.

My poor husband, who is not a fan of wild garlic smell was constantly complaining. Since the whole house was smelling like garlic-land. But for a good meal refired with wild garlic salt, he was willing to do anything.

WHAT you’ll need to make homemade herb salt 

500 g (1.1 lbs) coarse salt
150 g (1/3 lbs) fresh wild garlic leaves

How to make wild garlic salt

Begin by cleaning wild garlic. Simply put wild garlic leaves in a sink with water and swish the leaves around to remove the dirt. Shake the leaves to remove excess water.

Then place wild garlic in a large colander to drain. Meantime preheat the oven to 60 °C (140 °F).

Next blend wild garlic leaves with about one quarter of the salt. Then add the remaining salt to the wild garlic salt mixture and combine well.

Now transfer the wild garlic salt to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put the baking sheet in the preheated oven.

Crack open the oven door and insert a thick wooden spoon. keep it like that while the salt is drying.
Let the salt dry for about 3 hours or until the salt is completely dry. Keep stirring in between.

  • You could also let the salt dry outside if where you’re it’s sunny.
  • or let the wild garlic salt dry at room temperature. This can take a couple of days for the salt to dry completely though, depending on the weather.

Pack in glass jars and store in a cool dry place. Hint: It’s better to put wild garlic that you use on daily basis in a small container. Just refill it when it’s empty. Because the wild garlic salt losses it’s aroma when you constantly opens it.
