🗒️ Ingredient Notes

Fresh rosemary: Fresh rosemary produces the most flavorful rosemary salt, as well as adds a beautiful green color. Having said that, you can make rosemary salt with dried rosemary instead without any further changes needed to the process. When using dried rosemary, use 2 tablespoons per 1 cup of salt.

Sea salt: A nice sea salt free of any additives will produce the best rosemary salt. Coarse sea salt not only produces the best flavor in my opinion but also gives you more control on how coarse you would like thee finished salt to be.

  • 1 cup coarse sea salt
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary leaves removed from stems and stems discarded


  • Preheat the oven to 200°F.
  • In a blender or food processor, blend the rosemary and salt until the rosemary has tinted the salt green. You can pulse for a coarser salt or blend on high for a fine salt.
  • Spread the salt in an even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes to cure the salt.
  • Remove the salt from the oven and let cool before storing and enjoying! If you want a super smooth, fine salt, sift the salt before funneling into a bottle or jar for storage.
  • This salt will keep for at least a year but the flavor is strongest with the first 3 months.

    I am excited to make this. I never thought of making rosemary salt as a homemade spice blend – but we use fresh rosemary all the time on potatoes, or roasted veggies. Thanks for the idea. I think I’m going to make a series of spice blends as Christmas gifts for my kids and husband as we all love to
