Meyer Lemons just arrived in our local Green Grocery. These little darlings have the most wonderful smell. They kinda brighten up a Winter’s Day. I wanted to try something different with them, AH! Flavored Salt.
I found these jars at the Mega-Mart and thought this would be perfect for Food As Gifts.
So here’s how it went …
Auntie Doni’s Meyer Lemon & Thyme Infused Sea Salt
½ C. Coarse Sea Salt
2 Meyer Lemons, zested (approximately 2 Tbsp. of zest, no white pith please)
2 Tbsp. fresh Thyme, cleaned and dried well (leaves only, stripped off the stems)
Place all of the ingredients into a Food Processor and whiz it up to the coarseness of your choice.
You’ll have enough Salt to fill 2 four ounce Mason Jars.
Refrigeration is not necessary in an airtight container, such as a Mason Jar. Your infused salt will last indefinitely in a cool, dark cupboard.
And this my friends is why I had to return those uber cute jars, they’re not airtight, DANG IT!! I transferred the salt into regular 4 oz. jars, fitted with new lids and rings. Oh well. But I mean, come on man! How great does that look?!
I shared a jar with Missus Dear Friend, who has tried her share of the bounty on acoupla things already.
Her first try was on some Baked Salmon Fillets served with her KILLER Caesar Salad; next was her outstanding Guacamole, MMM!
The possibilities are endless.
*Cook’s Tip: You don’t need to go out and buy expensive labels. Use your favorite Word Processor and print out whatever you like, in the font and colors that tickle your fancy; use your choice of crafting scissors and a glue stick. That’s it. It’s simple, cute and the label will wash right off with warm, soapy water.
