Flavored Salts


I am always looking for something fun to make as gifts. This year I am (hoping) to make some flavored salts. I have seen them in food mags but they are soo expensive. But these are easy to make and help add a little something to your cooking.  Here is a gift tag to give with the salts. The picture is a little blurry but click on it and the picture in the new window is clearer.

Holiday Berry Salt

In food processor blend 1 cup salt, 1/2 cup dried cranberries, 1 TBL. anise (or fennel) seeds, 1 TBL ground pepper. Process till cranberries are finely chopped.

Citrus Lavender Salt.

What a clever idea Clarice! Would it be good to make it with course Kosher salt? I just bought some.


How yummy sounding. And what sweet gift ideas.


Oh how divine Clarice! strangely enough, this weekend there was a visiting French farmers market in my hometown,I bought a big bag of organic sea salt, now I know what I shall use it for!


That sounds really interesting. Am I getting some? I would like to make some seasoning blends like RR's grill mix or a fish blend. Love, Mom


What a terrific idea Clarice and it's so nice of you to share the label that you've created!


I love recipes like this and especially as gifts. Thank you so much for sharing the recipes as well as the gift tag.


Lovely idea, thankyou.


This sounds divine...I'd love to know how you go making it...such lovely gifts to make and receive!
