Description

Create your own garlic salt with this simple recipe, perfect for adding a robust flavor to any dish. A natural kitchen essential.

Ingredients
  • Fresh garlic cloves
  • Coarse salt (sea salt or kosher salt works best)
  • Optional: dried herbs for additional flavor (rosemary, thyme, or oregano are great choices)
Instructions
  1. Prepare the Garlic

    Start by peeling your garlic cloves. The amount of garlic you use can be adjusted based on how potent you want your garlic salt to be.

  2. Roast the Garlic

    (Optional step for a deeper flavor) Slice the garlic thinly and roast it in the oven at a low temperature until dry but not browned.

  3. Mix Garlic and Salt

    Combine the dried garlic with your choice of salt in a blender or food processor. Add any dried herbs here if you wish.

  4. Blend to Desired Consistency

    Pulse the mixture until it reaches your preferred texture. For a finer salt, blend longer. For a coarser texture, blend briefly.

  5. Store Properly

    Transfer the garlic salt to an airtight container. It can be stored in a cool, dry place for several months.
