Seasoned Finishing Salts

Grocery stores and malls are packed with last minute shoppers, and in just a few hours and Santa will be making his rounds. 


My three teenagers are thrilled and thankfully not too old to indulge in a little holiday fun!

As promised yesterday, I have one more quick and easy last minute gift to share with you.  This little item makes a great hostess gift for any holiday gathering or just a neat touch to add to a gift for the cook in the family.

And it'll keep you from having to run out in the Christmas Eve mobs last minute to grab one last gift!

I was inspired to create this after seeing finishing salts (in Weck jars) for sale at $10.00 each in a culinary store.  
I knew I could make them much cheaper!

Audley said mine were probably better as well.


The simplicity of this project is what makes it so great!  If you enjoy cooking, you probably have all of the ingredients right on hand.

All you need is 24 ounces of coarse sea salt, 4-5 tablespoons dried rosemary, 3-4  tablespoons dried garlic, and peppercorns.

Four ingredients and a jar for presentation.  

That's it.


In a medium mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  
For the peppercorns, I used a pepper grinder and added about 2-3 tablespoons.

I used Weck jars that I already had on hand

 Once everything has been combined in your bowl, pour into little jars and seal.


Add a little holiday flourish and you have a five minute gift (or treat for yourself) that looks great and is a wonderful addition to any beef, chicken, or lamb dinner this Christmas season!

Just sprinkle over the top of the cooked meat to finish it off before serving!


Wishing you all a blessed Christmas Eve!
