Gift idea: DIY flavoured salt

It is always nice to give people presents. In my experience, giving home made presents is even nicer. The person receiving the gift knows that you put your thoughts and energy into the gift that you made especially for them. Having said that, there is not always time to make something difficult and time consuming.

These flavoured salts are the perfect gift for when somebody invited you over for dinner, or for when you just want to say thank you to somebody. It looks very luxurious, and people can actually use it! You can really use your own imagination with this. You can put everything that you like inside. I made these three examples:

Rosemary and Lemon flavoured salt:

  • Coarse sea salt
  • Fresh rosemary
  • Lemon zest
  1. Heat the oven on 150 C and put some baking paper on the oven tray. Grate the lemon, and put the zest on the paper. Cut the rosemary and add to the lemon. Leave it for a couple of minutes in the oven, until the lemon is completely dry. This you need to do, so the salt will not get wet and clump together. Mix ingredients with the salt in a bowl until blended. Store in little tubes or in a jar.

Lime and Chili flavoured salt:
