Baby it’s dark outside! But don’t worry, these garlic and herb salts will keep the bright summer flavors in your kitchen all winter long.
Roasted garlic and summer herb salt blend:
Harvest the last of your summer herbs, basil, sage, thyme, whatever you have, dry until they can crumble at your finger tips
Roast 3-4 cloves of garlic with a drizzle of olive oil
When cool, remove from the skin and finely chop, it will be sticky at first
Mix the roasted garlic with a few teaspoons of salt and set aside to dry
Finely chop the dried herbs
Mix in the chopped herbs with the garlic and salt until all the textures are combined
Stir or run a knife through the mixture until all flavors are mixed well, set to dry some more, about 10-15 minutes
When dry, place in a mason jar and keep close to brighten any meal all winter long
Rosemary Garlic Salt:
Remove the rosemary from the springs
Peel the garlic
Finely chop the garlic and rosemary together
Set on a paper towel and dry overnight
When dry, add the sea salt with the chopped ingredients and place in a glass jar and seal
Keep handy when cooking to add an extra special flavor to any dish
Thrown over baby potatoes with a few glugs of olive oil and roasted is a favorite of mine!
This is the recipe that keeps on giving! Also makes for great homemade gifts.
