Lemon Dill Finishing Salt is the perfect salt for crab cakes, chicken, and even pork. It also makes a great gift!
I’m trying to make my own.
Salts, sauces, salad dressings. You name it, I’m trying to make it. I want to control the sodium, fat, fake content in our foods. Not because we’re doing the whole organic, holistic, whole foods, thing. No offense, but that whole movement just irritates me. People will jump on that bandwagon until the NEXT big thing comes along.
Don’t get me wrong, I am FAR from the picture of health. I have my own health issues to deal with, but I am trying to make my own and make it flavors we like, or tastes we love. Lemon and dill? LOVE that! I made some fabulous Lemon Dill Crab Cakes last year. They were… FABULOUS!! I still remember how they taste. I really should make those again. Hmm… *plans meals for next week*
Since I won a gift certificate to Freund, I’ve been making herb blends and salt blends as gifts. Because now I have cute containers to put them instead of the recycle jars. I’ll still keep the recycled jars, but have prettier ones to use for now.
Dad used his lemon rosemary salt the other day for steak and said it was delicious! I asked about the poultry seasoning. He said he used it on Cornish hens and it was very good! I didn’t ask about the BBQ rub. It’s been too cold to start up the grill.
I’ve made some berbere seasoning for us to use and taco seasoning. I haven’t branched out into garam masala but I’m DYING to try to recreate the crack that my friends mother in law makes. It’s the shiznit. It’s like that hot sauce commercial….I put that S on everything. *snort*
This lemon dill finishing salt smells AH-mazing!! I allowed the zest to rest with the salt for at least a week. I’d shake it periodically to make sure it was blended well. When I opened the container…WOW! This lemon aroma just permeated the air. Delish. I can’t wait to send this one on it’s way. I made enough for S and I to use and I can’t wait! It truly does smell fabulous and you should try it. It’s super easy and so very tasty.
