This was an old method of preserving herbs and flowers. This is a great method of helping to reduce the amount of salt you use at the table.

This is a wonderful to keep herbs once winter approaches! I'm going to do this every year. I'm thinking a salt grinder & some of this salt will make nice Christmas gifts. I used kosher salt. This was made for the Aussie Swap 11/07. :)


  1. Put a 1/4 in layer of salt in a clean jar.
  2. Pack alternate layers of fresh herbs and salt in a glass jar. The salt layer should just barely cover the herbs.
  3. Top with remaining salt.
  4. Store tightly covered in a dry cool place.
  5. Pick out herbs to use in cooking. Or when herbs are dry (2 to 5 weeks) grind the salt and herbs together in a blender then place in a shaker for use at the table.
