If you’ve decided to give your guests a little gift on your wedding day, there are limitless options! The sky is your limit! If it’s something tasty you’re hoping to present, flavoured salt is a beautiful option. Consider serving your own mix of homemade salt on your wedding day, so that the flavour will bring back memories whenever it’s used. It’s a cinch to make, and will last (at minimum) one year, so can be made well in advance for the organised amongst us. Choose your flavours, and get making!
What You Will Need:
- Good quality sea salt, or salt flakes, or pink Himalayan salt
- Your chosen flavouring ingredients. We’ve used lemon and rosemary, but you could just use one of these, or consider adding spices, other herbs such as sage or thyme, or other zests
- Sealable glass or ceramic containers
- Cutting board, sharp knife, oven tray
- Food processor or nutribullet
Step 1. Prepare all the ingredients. For herbs, strip the leaves from the stems, and roughly chop. Zest any fruits, and measure out spices. For our lemon and rosemary salt, the ratio was 1 cup of salt, 2 tablespoons of rosemary leaves, and the zest of one, large lemon.
Step 2. Place half of the salt and all the fresh ingredients into a food processor and blitz until a sand like mix has formed. This won’t take long, but the more coarse or fine the mixture is very much a personal preference. Mix the rest of the salt in, and then place it on a baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes at 160 degrees, then let cool.
Step 3. Once the salt has cooled, funnel it into clean jars, and seal tightly. Label and date the salt, then store in a dark and cool place until it’s party time!
