Ingredients

  • garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/2  Cup  kosher salt
  • 1  Cup  fresh rosemary
  • 1  Cup  fresh sage leaves

Directions

Cut each garlic clove lengthwise through the center. If there is a sprout, remove it, and discard it.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the garlic and 2 teaspoons of the salt. Pulse until the garlic is chopped to a medium-coarse texture. Add the herbs and continue pulsing until the mixture is the texture of very coarse sand. Transfer to a baking sheet and toss with the remaining salt.

Leave near an open window for a couple of days to dry. Store in clean, dry jars.

Salt Shopping Tip

Salt enhances food by adding depth and accentuating existing flavors. Be sure to have a couple types in your cupboards. Regular iodized salt for the table is typical; sea salt is also a great investment.

Salt Cooking Tip

Bland food is never good. Be sure to season every layer of your food while cooking.
