Edible Gift: Herb Salts - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

Here's another great edible gift to bring to your next dinner party: herbal infused salts! It's a great way to make ordinary ingredients really special. Here's how to do it:

fresh herbs and salts


- Sea Salt (coarse or fine - I've used coarse Himalayan Pink Salt)

- Organic Herbs (I've used fresh sage, rosemary, and thyme)

blending up herbs and salt

How To:

Combine 1 part herb/spice with 4 parts salt in a food processor (you can use a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder as well).

It won't take long for the salt to be infused with the potent flavors and aromas of the herb or spice.  Once combined, it's ready to serve or package for gifting.

Isn't that pretty?

It smells so fresh, and can be used on anything from homemade bread to roasted root vegetables to salting the rim of margarita (you could add chili pepper!) - the possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
