Last Minute Gift: Infused Sea Salt

It’s the final countdown and you are going over in your mind everyone that you will see this week at parties and play dates. You would be such a gracious and thoughtful friend/party guest if you could get it together enough not to arrive empty handed. It should be something unique, but not something over-indulgent. Something practical, yet still have an air of gifty-ness. And please, after what you have already spent on gifts for your family, it must be affordable. No, what I really mean is cheap. . I’ve got you covered.

Sea Salt Infusions


Cilantro-Lime Sea Salt:

2 Cups sea salt

½ cup packed cilantro

Zest of 4 limes

Lemon-Pepper and Chive:

2 cups sea salt

1/2 bunch scallions, greens only

Zest of 4 lemons

1/2 cup coarse pepper


3 sprigs rosemary

1/2 cup packed oregano

1.  Pulse all ingredients in food processor until blended well.



2.  Drink eggnog



3.  Spread salt mixture onto cookie sheet and bake in oven for 2 hours at 200 degrees. Stir occasionally.

4.  Put back in food processor if it comes out a little clumpy. Use recycled jars with a tag or bow!

    since I was a recipient of said gift – I will say that I was blown away by such a small thing. Really looking forward to using the salts. They smell devine.
