we always grow a variety of herbs but you can only use so many fresh herbs. this year we wanted to preserve them so we could use them through the winter months. we decided to try making this herbed salt. it was a really simple way to preserve them and will be a great gift to give throughout the holidays. enjoy!
6 cups of fresh herbs (I used basil, rosemary, sage, and thyme)
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup sea salt
finely dice all of the herbs with a chef's knife. you want them to be diced very very fine!
-do the same to the garlic
-combine all of the ingredients
-spread the mixture out on a parchment paper lined baking pan
let dry out for a day or two. if you have an oven that is cooling you can also stick in the oven when oven is warm, just to dry it out a bit quicker
-store in a closed containers when salt is completely dry
