Provencal Seasoning Salt

"After ordering this from & absolutely loving the flavor, I used it sparingly to preserve my stash. Then my logic kicked in. It's an easy task to make my own. Now I use it liberally especially on popcorn!"

Ready In:
1/2 cup


  • 14 cup coarse salt (I use Kosher salt)
  • 14 dried herbes de provence (your own blend or ready made)


  • Add salt to a coffee grinder, herb mill or small food processor.
  • Process until the granules are of table salt size. ( Time will vary according to which type of appliance you're using. In my little Handy Chopper it takes less than 20 seconds.).
  • Pour in the herbes de provence and process until the pieces are small enough to pass through a salt shaker. Again, time will vary.
  • Store in a salt shaker or spice container with shaker top.
  • Voila! You've made your own special seasoning salt.

    What a fun idea. I love the flavors in herbs de provence so turning it into a salt was inspired I thought. I had to sample it so tried it on popcorn per your suggestion. A new favorite. Thanks Susie!

    What a great idea! What a great aroma! I love this, Susie -- and now I have this lovely salt that is fine enough to go into a conventional salt shaker. Very cool!

    Thanks for the tip! This stuff is great and so easy to make! Why pay big $$$ when we can make it ourselves! Thanks for Sharing


<p>Hello from suburban Fort Worth, Texas! <br /> <br /><br /> <br />______________________________________________ <br /> <br /> <br />*My rating system defined* <br /> <br />Very few recipes really knock my socks off - I love to cook but am not a gourmet. <br />This said: <br /> <br />***** - met all my expectations in taste &amp; appearance; directions were clear &amp; easy to follow. <br /> <br />**** - fell slightly short of my expectations in taste or appearance or directions were faulty or not completely clear. <br /> <br />*** - mediocre taste and/or appearance; most likely a recipe that I would not use again without much modification. <br /> <br />** - taste and/or appearance was not to my liking; a recipe that I would not attempt to modify or use again. <br /> <br />* - taste was absolutely not to my liking (I can't imagine ever using this rating as I can generally tell by the ingredients if I will enjoy the finished product or not) <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;</p>
