Finishing salts are an easy and perfect way to use the herbs in your garden and they make beautiful and delicious handmade gifts for the family and friends. The chive blossom salt not only tastes fantastic, but also looks great with its light purple colour.
You can use chive blossom salt on grilled meats and veggies, sprinkle it over avocado toast, and salads, or use it to make a compound butter. My favourite way to use it is to season a blue steak, salad, roasted asparagus and Quark cheese-so simple yet so dang tasty.

  • 300 g Coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup Chive blossoms
  • Zest of 1 large organic lemon, grated
  1. Line a small baking tray with a piece of parchment paper. Place sea salt, chive blossoms and grated lemon zest together on the prepared tray.
  2. Use your hands to rub everything together. Spread out the mixture into one layer. Cover the tray with a large umbrella food cover.
  3. Allow the salt mixture to dry out at room temperature in a warm and dry area. (I left mine at the kitchen window for 4 days) This will take around 2-4 days depending on the humidity. During this time, the salt should be turned and stired several times for even drying. You can dry the mixture in an oven for about 1 - 2 hours at 50C/122F. To allow the moisture to escape from the oven, a wooden spoon is clamped between the oven door.
  4. Once the finishing salt is dry, package it into a clean dry jar with an airtight lid. They make a great holiday gift.

Es un regalo muy original y práctico. Yo no uso esta sal de cebollino, pero es porque aquí no existe la costumbre de usarla, con tus buenas recetas esto cambia. Gracias.
Un beso.

I learned something new today. The chive blossoms in my garden are white so we have different types of chives. Don't know if I can use the white blossom in this recipe.

@Nancy Chan Sure, Nancy. You can use white chive blossoms to make the finishing salt. I like blue blossoms because I prefer the colour contrast against white sea salt and yellow lemon zest.

It's Judee- I love this idea and have never seen anything like it. I grow herbs and usually just use them for salads and cooking. There are always herbs that go to waste- this idea is brilliant and I can't wait to try it.

First you inspire me to try chive blossom butter, and now this salt. Great idea - loving it!

Nice. Great blend of soft colors in the salt.

mjskit 8/7/22 04:56

You are so creative! Like I mentioned earlier, I miss the chive blossoms but I'm saving this for the next bloom. Now you have inspired me to start looking around my garden and see what I can use in a finishing salt, something I use a lot.
