Rosemary Sea Salt Favor

Introduction

Use rosemary, an herb of love and remembrance, to preserve memories of your seaside wedding. Guests can take home this fragrant sea salt to sprinkle over potatoes or use as an ingredient in focaccia. After preparing, decant into airtight containers, and label with your new, shared initial and wedding date.

This herb-infused salt is fragrant and can be substituted for unseasoned salt in any savory recipe. Makes 8 cups.

Materials

  • Large, high-sided saute pan
  • 1 three-pound box kosher salt (about 8 cups)
  • Bunches fresh rosemary, plus more for garnish
  • Container with airtight lids

Steps

  1. Step 1

    In a large, high-sided saute pan, combine salt and rosemary. Place over medium heat, and warm through, about 10 minutes. Transfer salt and rosemary mixture to a container. Let cool 5 minutes, uncovered; then cover with an airtight lid. Let stand at least overnight.

  2. Step 2

    When ready to fill containers, discard old rosemary. Fill desired containers with salt, and garnish top with a fresh sprig of rosemary; seal containers.

    First of all, WHY is it necessary to give a wedding date to register?? It is not my wedding I am planning and I just had a question.

    What I want to know is how long the sea salt will keep with the rosemary in it? I am making these for my niece. And I want to know how far ahead I can make them.
    Thank you

    I found some super cute spice jars on worldmarket.com -- and they were less than $6 for a pack of six!

    I'm going to use this for our wedding. I have collected baby food jars from friends and I'm going to paint the lids and design a sticker for the side. Simple cheap and our guest will enjoy these. :-D

    I found the jars here...http://www.weckcanning.com/docs/mini_mold.htm
    But i'm wondering how to order and what size. I'm guessing the Mini Mold, 80 ml... I'm trying to make these for my wedding... i only have one month. Any suggestions?

    Can you use garlic or any other spice, instead of the rosemary? Would love to make my own!

    The Container Store carries similar jars, and I think Cost Plus does too. I believe you can order them on-line from the Container Store.

    I would suggest checking Michaels or other craft stores.. they carry most jars similar to that above.
