How to Make Herb Salts + Free Printables

You know what I love about cooking? All of the awesome, unexpected flavors that you can blend together to make something taste so delightful. For years, I’ve been wanting to make herb salts to enhance the flavor of my dishes. This is one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever try. Promise.

The best part of this project is that you can use your favorite herbs to make this. I decided to use chives, basil and an herb that I normally don’t use very often in my cooking, rosemary.

I was surprised of how pungent rosemary is. It kind of had a pine tree smell to it. I wanted to try rosemary because I wanted to bake some chicken and use it, as well as a pot roast this weekend.

Step 1: Cut up your herbs with your knife. Then place the herbs in the food processor. Pulse a few times. I used the entire amount of herbs that came in the little package from the grocery store. It was about 1/3 of a cup or so.

Step 3: Spread parchment paper on your baking sheet then spread the salt on top. Dry out the herbs, by placing the baking sheet in the oven for 20 minutes on 175 degrees for 20 minutes. Then, turn off the oven and allow the herb salt to sit for another 30 minutes or until the oven cools down.

Step 4: Pour your salt into your air-tight container. Then, peel off your label that you printed from your home printer and stick it onto your container.

**The salt should last in the refrigerator for about three months.

    How did you make your labels? Did you design it with the online labels software then buy the oval adhesive paper to print it on? Or they printed the design and posted it to you?

      Hi Gracie, I used the “Maestro” software to design the labels. Then I also purchased the adhesive labels. But if you don’t want to print it out, they can do it for you as well. I’ve had them do this for me in the past as well. They do an amazing job. They can print out laser jet labels for you, which won’t smear even if you get it wet. I’d definitely give it a shot. I think you’ll become a fan fast.
