Always on the look out for something extra to add to my gifts during the holidays and throughout the year, I spend a ton of time on Pinterest in the DIY tab. I love finding cute and easy gifts to make, bonus if they are edible.
This week I found Citrus salts. The original post is here.
The original post calls for equal parts citrus zest and coarse salt.
I would not recommend that at all. I used a whole container of coarse kosher sea salt, about 6 or 8 cups, and only used the zest from 6 lemons. It isn’t completely dry yet, so I may add some more zest if I need but total that would be about 1 cup of zest for 8 cups of salt. It would be waayy too lemony if you used equal parts.
So easy. Put the salt in a container, zest the lemons into the container. Put a lid on the container or use a spoon and mix it all together until it is evenly mixed.
Let it air dry and then store in a cool dry place.
I ordered little tubes to put mine in so I can put them in my christmas gifts this year.
I also, obviously, made enough so I can keep some for myself. I am already thinking garnishes on cocktails, and seasoning soups and yummy dishes. The possibilities are endless! I would also love to try grapefruit or lime salt too.
