Rosemary was one of the first herbs I planted and harvested when I began gardening a few years ago. I have the same plant from five years ago, and it is one of my biggest and most beautiful plants. It can survive the winters here in Georgia and comes back in full bloom every spring.
I love to harvest fresh Rosemary to use for many different things. Sometimes, I will create simmer pots or use Rosemary to cook with. Other times, I will dry the Rosemary to keep it for dry rubs or creating seasonings. A fun creation I have made recently is homemade Rosemary salt. I am excited to share with you how easy this recipe is to make!
Rosemary salt will be the perfect addition to many recipes including chicken, roasted potatoes or vegetables, and bread.
Step one- let your bundle of rosemary dry
Once you harvest your Rosemary, let it dry. I usually let mine hang to dry. I have a spare closet that I have hanging stations in for my herbs. If you are going to hang dry your herbs, you want to make sure to use a dry, dark place. You can also put them in a dehydrator on the herbs & spice setting and it only takes a few hours to dry them out.
Make sure your bundle of Rosemary is very dry and brittle before continuing.
Step Two- Grind down red Himalayan salt into a fine powder
You want it to have a very fine, powdery consistency without any large chunks of salt.
Step Three- Remove the Rosemary Leaves from the Stalks and Grind it.
Step Four- Combine the salt and Rosemary To a Jar and Shake.
Take the finely ground red Himalayan salt and the ground Rosemary and combine the ingredients into a 4 oz mason jar. Stir the contents before placing the lid on the jar. Then, shake the jar to combine the ingredients well.
- ½ cup red Himalayan salt
- Some stalks of fresh rosemary
- Let your bundle of rosemary dry. You can hang it up in a bundle away from any heat or moisture until it is brittle, or you can put it in a dehydrator for a few hours on the herbs and spice setting.
- Grind down your red Himalayan salt into a fine powder.
- Remove the rosemary leaves from the stalks. Grind it down with a mortar and pestle or a herb grinder. You can also chop it into small pieces as well.
- Add the salt and the chopped rosemary into your mason jar and shake until it is combined.
