The boys and I shared some special time creating this seasoned sea salt for my mother and mother – in- law for their special day.  They had so much fun picking the herbs and zesting the fruit!  I have included the labels for you to print and use. Some without dear mom to be used as a gift for any special someone. Simply use this template and print on heavy white or creme card stock.

Citrus + Herb Sea Salt Recipe

1 cup coarse sea salt

1 teaspoon each of sage, thyme, and, rosemary

1 teaspoon each of lemon and orange zest

Preheat oven to 200 degrees.  Finely chop herbs and zest and mix with the salt.  Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes, just enough to dry the herbs and zest.  When the salt is cooled you or your child may crush together with your fingers or pulse in a food processor to incorporate the flavors of the salt, herbs, and fruit zest. This salt works great on most everything, especially eggs.

I used these weck jars for packaging, but any small jar would work well.  enjoy!

favorite part … zesting the fruit!  

enjoy creating this easy gifting recipe with your children.
