1/3 Photos of Fool's Salt - Sel Fou - French Style Seasoning Salt
French Tart's Note:
Every self-respecting French housewife has a tub of this by the side of her cooker; they are all slightly different depending on the region you live in, but this is one that I use over and over again. It has just a hint of herbs & spices, enhancing a dish rather than overpowering it. The French call this "Sel Fou" or Fool's Salt, which is a wonderful name for it I think! Please note, I have NOT added any chilli powder or Cayenne pepper in this mix - I realise that hot spices are popular in seasoning salts, but this is herbal rather than spiced! I use it to sprinkle over salads, add it to pasta, stews, soups, daubes, casseroles, pies, roast chicken & meat etc. It is also GREAT sprinkled onto hot Chips (French fries) & over the top of pizzas. I don't like to make huge quantities, due to the herbs losing their freshness and flavour - so, this makes about 125g (just over 5 ozs) of Fool's Salt; you can of course increase the quantities if you wish!
