Herb Salt

August 1, 2007 | Filed Under Herbs 


It’s August!  Have you made your herb salt, yet? 

Some time ago, I made some herb salt (with rosemary and thyme).  I loved it!  I used it on almost everything.  It was easy to make and I loved the fragrance, texture and color of the salt.  Here’s the recipe again.



Herb Salt

Fresh herbs, whatever you like, you can make it with different ones or just one.

Coarse salt


– Take a bunch of fresh herbs and remove the woody parts if there are any.  Put them in a blender together with a fistful of coarse salt.

– Turn the blender on and let it run until it has become like fine salt.  Add more herbs if you want.

– Put it in a jar and use it.  Often.

    Paz, your photographs are works of art. There’s a place in Manhattan, a photo equipment store, that will take your photos and put them on display in some sort of system where they can be sold “for fun and profit.” If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll find out from my son, Bernie, where the place is. :)

  13. Such a wonderful idea. I actually haven’t made any in years! Thanks for the reminder.

  14. Hi Kathleen: You are giving me a swell head. I won’t be able to get out of the door now. I have such a big head. Thanks for the magnificent compliment.

    Hi Nora: Welcome! Have fun making and using your herb salt.

    Thanks, everyone, for stopping by.


  15. I guess I should be making my own with all the herbs growing wild in the back yard. It’s just that I bought so many while we were in France I really don’t need them right now.
    Great photos, again and again!

  16. Tanna: You’re so lucky to have your own garden full of herbs. I can imagine all the goodies you brought back from France. 😉
