🗒️ 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.
