Rosemary, Basil and Citrus Salt

Rosemary, Basil and Citrus Salt

Hi everybody :)

I seen many herbal mixes on Pinterest that sound really interested, so I was inspired to give it a try. I went out to my little herb garden and picked basil and rosemary. I used 1 tablespoon of the lemon zest I talked about here.  I wanted to do a seasoning that would go well with chicken. Here is what I came up with...

Rosemary, Basil and Citrus Salt inspired by  this, this ,and  this

1/2 box sea salt 
1 cup rosemary
1 cup basil
1 tablespoon

I divided the sea salt evenly among the remaining ingredients.

For the Rosemary
Rub your hand down the stem of the rosemary to remove the leaves. 
In a saucepan over medium high heat the rosemary and salt stir occasionally for 10 minutes
Remove from heat and allow to cool. Sift rosemary to remove as much of the leave as possible. Pulse in a mini food processor for a few seconds. Set aside.

For the Basil:
Wash and dry basil, (make sure it's dry). Add the salt to the basil and pulse in mini food processor for a few seconds. Remove and spread out on parchment paper. (I didn't, it stuck to the foil, I had to wrack it a little to get it unstuck) Place basil mixture in oven at 275 for 30 minutes.  Cool and pulse in mini food processor for a few seconds. Set aside.
