Hey Sexy MDM (Modern Day Martha!) Get your holiday gifting done early this year! These salts keep for up to a year or two and are the most adorable gift giving idea in the world.

Ingredients

You choose: Dried Sage, rosemary, basil, thyme, lavender, tarragon, parsley

-High quality sea salt, coarse grind. none of that iodized garbage puh-lease!

-Mason Jars , high-quality ribbon, homemade paper tags, hole puncher, colored calligraphy pens

You choose your fave leftover herbs and or just buy a bunch in bulk at the farmer’s market and save to dry! Takes about a week to dry out all of the moisture completely. Try to have an even amount of herbs between the different varieties.

Once the herbs are completely dry, separate the twiggy stems from the leaves, discard all of the hard stems. Now comes the fun part, blend the dried herbs with salt (the proportions are, one or two tablespoons of herbs to five tablespoons of sea salt). Put them into a food processor (or you could can get old skool with it – using  a pestle and mortar).

Mix until they combine to form a gorgeous powder, for a lil elegant touch add a few peppercorns, juniper berries or a few pieces of dried lavender if desired to finish it off. Lavender, Herbs de Provence salt is my fave! Store in an airtight mason jar, in a cool dry place.

Finish by decorating with some ribbon, add in a sweet label, message, note or  salt combination tag. Makes for the perfect House warming, bridal shower, baby shower, welcome, thank you or just a lil way to say you’re spicy!

Look at you, you sexy, gorgeous MDM (modern day Martha) Makes the perfect, inexpensive and clever gift for anyone that cooks and loves herbs!
