A Couple Cooks - Herb and Garlic Salt

Our two pots of fresh herbs were the only remnant of our garden that moved to our new house this summer. We’ve been more intentional about watering, pruning, and holding on to these herbs for every last minute. But, fall has arrived in full. Usually we’d make a ton of pesto, freeze or dry the herbs, and start planning an optimistically over-sized garden for next spring. This recipe, however, is too perfect too not add our repertoire. A jar of this herb salt is good on everything; we’ve tried it on raw carrots, pastas, eggs, grilled cheese, and have only had it around for about a week!

If you’ve got any fresh herbs still hanging on outside, I highly recommend you whipping up a batch of this stuff. If you don’t, you must have a pot next year! The recipe is completely loose, so just add whatever herbs you’ve got!

    I love this! We still have parsley, basil and oregano-thyme in our garden. The basil is looking pretty lackluster after some really cold nights, but I’m going to use what’s left and make some of this. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    What a great idea! Do you know how long the salt will last?

      No idea, but I’m assuming a long time :)
