Salt Preserved Herbs
Using salt to preserve herbs is a tried and true method that dates back centuries. The fresh herbs permeate every ounce of the salt mixture that releases and preserves the garden harvest.
To preserve your fresh herbs:
- De-stem 15 to 20 stems of garden herbs - we used oregano, rosemary, thyme, and winter savory.
- Coarsley chop herbs.
- Add chopped herbs to 2/3 cup sea salt and briefly grind in a suribachi or mortar and pestle.
- We then funneled our mixture into amber glass bottles and made our own label designs!
