Flavored sea salts add dynamic taste & elegance with the greatest of ease. Use up the zest from your Harvest citrus and keep your eyes out for fun sea salts. Most stores have a wide selection these days.
- 1 Part Citrus Zest
- 2-3 Parts Sea Salt
Stir the zest into the sea salt in a shallow bowl or baking dish and spread the mixture out into a thin layer. Use ceramic or glass as metal can leave an aftertaste.
Put in a sunny warm location with good air circulation for a couple of days. The salt will cure the zest, removing all of its moisture. Stir daily and spread out again. When it’s nice and dry (2-3 days), pack into jars & wee baggies as gifts.
By the way, I used Himalayan, Bolivian & Hawaiian pink salts, Hawaiian black sea salt & Sicilian white sea salt. My citrus mix included oranges, tangerines, grapefruits & limes.
