Homemade Flavored Salts / Tuscan Herb

This time of year I’m rarely out of the kitchen – today it’s because I’m busy making homemade flavored salts. This Tuscan-herb one is particularly delicious. If you’d like some inspiration, community, and resources to keep you invested in your kitchen, become a member of my Cooking Community right here.

All the hours laboring from the chilliest of spring days to the hottest of the summer ones has paid off in the form of the harvest. Sweet Lord, the harvest. More often than not, I wander back to the kitchen with baskets full of tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, cabbages, onions, or herbs with tears of gratitude in my eyes (I’m getting far more hormonal as I age, turns out, and tears come easier than they used to).

The point is simply that sometimes a recipe is more than a recipe and these homemade flavored salts are actually a way to not only preserve the summer bounty of herbs, but also jar a bit of the gratitude that grows alongside them in the garden.

I’ll need to remember that bit of a gratitude in February, no doubt.
