Flavored Finishing Salt

The salts are delicious, here are our favorites:

A sprinkle of finishing salt goes a long way.

These flavored salts are easy and fast to make, perfect little edible homemade gifts but make sure to keep some for yourself. 

All you need is salt, flavors, small 2 oz containers and an electric coffee grinder.

For the Salt I am using Aztec Coarse Unrefined Sea Salt, it has a good amount of moisture so the salt crystals hold their shape. 

Here are some suggestions for flavor, but the possibilities are endless:

  • freeze dried blueberries - Blueberry salt (blueberry margarita, salads, steak)
  • organic rose petals, dried - Rose petal salt (truffles, salt rim for cocktails)
  • dried lime peel and one Kaffir leaf - Kaffir Lime Salt (Asian dishes, corn on cob)
  • dried herbs such as rosemary or thyme - Herb salt (Mediterranean dishes)
  • dried chili pepper - Chili salt
  • dried lemon peel - Lemon salt
  • crumbly cooked bacon - Bacon salt (popcorn, Bloody Mary, scrambled eggs)
The containers I am using are glass spice jars. 

Thoroughly clean the electric coffee grinder so your salts don't taste like coffee.

I use 2 1/2 tablespoons salt plus 1 tablespoon flavoring.

First pulse the flavoring a few times, then add the salt by tablespoons pulsing a few times to combine. 
Store the salt in an airtight container.
