Preserve your herb harvest by making flavourful herb salt. I used Himalayan pink salt, and a mix of herbs of sage, rosemary, thyme, parsley and oregano, but you can use whatever combos you love with different salts. It's easily customizable and makes great gifts.

  • 2-3 cup Fresh herbs such as sage, rosemary, thyme, parsley, oregano, or any herb you like
  • 5 Garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/2 cup Himalayan pink salt or sea salt
  1. Wash the herbs and remove coarse stems and any discolored leaves. Dry thoroughly.
  2. Place the herbs, garlic and salt in a food processor and pulse until you have a coarse grind. Don't over do it, you don't want a paste or puree. You can use a sharp knife to chop everything until you have a coarse mixture.
  3. The salt will be slightly wet at this point. Spread the salt on a baking tray and let it dry for a couple of hours. You can also preheat the oven to 120F/50C. Turn it off, then place in the baking tray and let it sit until it is dry to the touch. Store the herb salt in a glass jar and use as you wish. The juicy vine ripened tomatoes

Great way of preserving excess homegrown herbs. I like the bottle that you use to store your herb salt.

Terrific idea! We have lots of herbs in our garden this year, and it'll be a shame to lose them to frost when the weather gets cold. This is the perfect solution. Thanks!

Great idea! I am definitely going to make this. What gorgeous tomatoes and wonderful photo of them, Angie. I wish tomato season would last and last. We've been eating fresh tomatoes almost every day :)

Your salt sounds fantastic Angie but I have to admit those tomatoes really steal the show! What a great way to enjoy summers best produce.

What an interesting idea. I didn't know you could make your own and it will add lots of flavour to the food.

I need to start preserving my herbs in dried form; what a great reminder. Oh my those tomatoes with the dark background is a work of art in photography Angie!

Anca 2/9/18 10:20

That's interesting. I thought the herbs should be dried in the oven or air-dried before mixing them with the salt. But the other way around must be just as effective, if not even more. Great tips.

Jeff 2/9/18 13:21

What a great idea. Will this kind of blend keep indefinitely?

[Reply]
mimi rippee 2/9/18 17:48

This is brilliant! And so pretty. They would certainly make beautiful gifts. How long does the salt last and how do you store it? In the fridge?

Sophie 2/9/18 21:20

A tasty herb salt, I see! The uses are endless!
Another must make! yummy!

Adina 3/9/18 14:23

I love homemade salt mixture, my latest one was wild garlic salt in spring. I am keeping this in mind, I have most of those herbs in my garden and the addition of garlic is just wonderful.

Hi angie, I have never made herb salt. I have been getting crazy with tomatoes so this will be the great recipe to try.

I have a similar recipe that also adds some red pepper flake. I would love this on those ripe tomatoes!

Hmmmm herb and spice combos can really make or break a dish, but I feel like this one - this one would pair well with ALL the things (maybe except pumpkin ice cream, LOL).

First of all let me say that the photo of the tomatoes is breathtaking! Your photography is always beautiful, but that photo just makes me stop and stare. Now for the salt - I have a garden full of herbs and this is such a great way to use some of them. Oh yes, this salt would be fabulous on sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado toast, any number of foods. Thanks Angie for a great salt!

Eva Taylor 9/9/18 19:12

I thought I commented on this lovely post already. It's actually quite frustrating because more than half of my comments disappear, I have no idea where they go. I think blogger hates me because it happens on another blogger site.

This sounds super delicious especially on tomatoes Angie! I'm thinking cucumbers too! The two veggies I'm craving this week. Your tomato pics are gorgeous!

I love this flavoured salt, what a brilliant idea. Especially to dry it out after adding the moist ingredients. Thanks Angie, this is a winner!

Katerina Delidimou 21/9/18 13:44

If everybody knew how easy it is to make your own herbs, they wouldn't buy from the store! This is the perfect condiment!

Karen (Back Road Journal) 2/10/18 20:56

This is something I'll be making soon. The herbed salt would make a nice hostess gift.
