Let's Get Salty! DIY Finishing Salts You Can Make At Home

Salt is a must-have in the kitchen, obviously, but yet we are still so afraid to use it! Understandably so since you only need about 1/3 tsp of salt a day to keep your body in balance. But salt when used to finish your dish can add a whole new dimension of flavor! Use to season snacks, meals & cocktails. 

Red Wine / White Wine

2 tsp red or white wine
1/3 c sea salt
Spread the salt on a plate & pour your favorite red wine over top, gently stir. Don't worry, it won't melt! Cover & let sit for a few hours to let the wine sink in. Sprinkle atop your watermelon for a sweet & salty treat. 

Smoky Salt 

1/2 tsp smoked paprika 
1/4 c sea salt 
Use this salt to finish quite honestly any item coming right off the barbeque. We especially love to use this on grilled ears of corn!

Chili Lime Salt 

1/4 c sea salt
1 tsp red repper flakes 
1 1/2 tsp fresh lime zest
Mix these three ingredients together & voila! you know have a spicy salt to sprinkle on your seafood prior to digging in!

Mushroom Salt 

1/2 c dried porcini mushrooms, powdered 
1/4 c sea salt
We purchased our dried porcini mushrooms from our neighbor down the street, Pennsylvania Macaroni Company! Toss them in a food processor & pulse until powdered. Add to your sea salt & use to top pastas or risottos featuring mushrooms or a sizzlin' steak!

Italian Herb Salt

1/2 c sea salt
2 Tablespoons dried oregano leaves
2 Tablespoons dried basil leaves
2  Tablespoons dried thyme leaves
1 1/2 Tablespoons garlic powder
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 Tablespoon fresh ground black pepper

 mix all of the ingredients together & use to season poultry or vegetables!

Dill Pickle Flavored Sea Salt

1 c fresh dill leaves, stems removed
1/2 c flake salt
Dry your dill, either by using a dehydrator or your oven! (If using a dehydrator, we suggest 95 degrees to 4-6 hours. In your oven, use the lowest setting possible (warm or proof if available) & dry completely. This should take around 2 hours). Put your dried dill in a food processor & pulse a few times. Mix in to your salt flakes. 

Rosemary Lemon Salt

1/4 c salt
1 1/2 tsp dried lemon zest 
1 1/2 tsp rosemary sprigs
