This is a great all-purpose seasoning; put it in a pretty jar for giving.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon each of the following fresh herbs, finely chopped: thyme, oregano, basil, rosemary, sage
  • 2–3 bay leaves
  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled

Instructions

Skewer the bay leaves and garlic clove on a toothpick (this makes it easy to remove them).

Mix the salt and herbs well in a glass jar with a lid; embed the skewered garlic in the salt.

Let the mixture sit at room temperature for a week, shaking the jar well every day.

After a week, discard the garlic-bay skewer.

It keeps in a cool place for 3–4 months; its flavor will deepen over time.
