Rosemary/Lemon Sea Salt!

on December 11, 2012

December 11th, 2012 037

I think this just might be my new favorite homemade gift… it’s SO good!

What you’ll need…

  • 1c of coarse sea salt
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • peel of one lemon
  • a spice or coffee bean grinder!

Turn your oven onto a low (225-250) temperature.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Finely grate the zest off of one lemon and place that zest on the parchment.

Roughly chop your rosemary leaves and add to the one cup of salt that you’ve place in a separate bowl.  Give it a little stir.

In about four batches, you want to place the salt and the rosemary into the grinder and whiz away until all is quite fine.  Literally.

Pour each batch onto the cookie sheet… joining the lemon zest.

With your very best tool, your hands… ‘massage’ the mixture until there are no clumps and everything is mingling nicely.  🙂

Bake for about ten minutes, remove and let cool.

Again with your hands… ‘break’ the salt apart in to a fine sand.

Place into 125ml mason jars, tie a pretty little ribbon around it and you there you have it… a perfect little homemade gift!

This is not a salt that you want store away for a year or so… use it up!  🙂

14 more sleeps!  YAY!
