I love using flavored sea salt when cooking savory dishes. A little pinch of lemon rosemary salt added just before serving can really add an extra punch. I adore this salt on roasted vegetables and meats, but I have even tried it on cookies with surprisingly tasty results!
You can spend a small fortune buying artisan-flavored salts at the market, or save a few bucks and make your own. It’s easy to do although not quite as simple as just adding some spices to the salt. A little heat is needed to mix it all up just right.
- 1 cup coarse sea salt
- 1 sprig of fresh rosemary, plus 1-3 smaller sprigs for garnish
- 1 tsp lemon zest

- Add all the ingredients (minus the garnish rosemary) to a pot and stir well over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, until warmed through. Remove from heat and cool.

- Remove the rosemary branch, then pack into clean, wide-mouth jars. Add the smaller rosemary sprigs to the sides and top of the jar for garnish.
