The perfect herbs for your seasoning salt
Basically, most herbs are very suitable for making seasoning salt. So you can choose what tastes best to you personally. Some herbs harmonize particularly well and can therefore be combined well.
Parsley, chives and marjoram are absolute classics that can be used for a variety of dishes. If you like it Mediterranean like I do, herbs like oregano, thyme, basil and rosemary are great. These are also great to combine into a seasoned salt. They are also available in any supermarket. Dill and lemon zest are great for fish dishes. Be sure to use only untreated organic lemons.
Warm water in the morning also boosts your metabolism throughout the day. This has a positive effect on digestion and the ingested calories are burned more easily.
Make seasoning salt with fresh or dried herbs
When it comes to the question of fresh or dried herbs: both are well suited for a seasoning salt.dried herbs you can use directly, while fresh herbs are dried in the last step in the oven (more on this directly in the recipe) Alternatively, you can store seasoning salt from fresh herbs in the refrigerator. In this case, it does not need to go into the oven.
Basic recipe for homemade seasoning salt
Rule of thumb for mixing ratio: 1:10 or if you like it more intensive 2:10 (10 - 20g herbs to 100g salt)
You will need the following ingredients:
- Salt in the form of table salt, sea salt or Himalayan salt
- Herbs of your choice, individually or in combination: eg basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, dill, lovage, sage, mint, lavender
Seasoned salt with fresh herbs
- Remove the stems from the washed herbs and finely chop them with a knife or a chopper.
- Mix the herbs with the salt.
- Fill the herb-salt mixture directly into a jar and store in the refrigerator. If you want to store the spice salt in the spice cabinet, spread the mixture on a baking sheet. Dry at 100 degrees in a preheated oven for 1-2 hours. Leave the door open a crack.
Seasoning salt from dried herbs
- Finely chop the dried herbs.
- Mix the herbs with the salt
- Fill the herb-salt mixture into a jar, e.g. jam jar.
Tip: You can also fill your spice salt directly into a spice mill. Coarse sea salt is particularly suitable here. You can chop the spices coarsely, as they are crushed by the mill.
