This is one of those things that you do because you think it will be fun and just to see if people like it, and then they do. And now, it's fun and now you're making salt! I looked around last season and saw that I had a lot of lemon basil in my beds that needed to be used. So, I made herb salt and brought it to my market the following week for folks to sample and buy if they wanted. To my surprise, it went like hotcakes!
Fast forward a year and there are five flavors (Rose Chili, Lemon Basil, Thai Basil, Garlic Chive, and Rosemary Lemon Thyme), we're in a couple stores, the salts will be available in the online shop soon, and we have plans for more!
They're a game changer on popcorn and they liven up anything you throw on the grill. If you're worried about your salt intake, consider herbs salts. Because they pack a lot of flavor, you end up using less salt overall. Herb salts also last just about forever because the salt preserved the herbs. We have adorable 2.5 oz. jars (with equally adorable wooden spoon for scooping!) as well as 1 oz. resealable pouches. They make great gifts and will be a happy addition to your spice cabinet.
