Just like infused sugar, there’s a myriad of ways you can use infused or flavored salt too. Add herbs, berries, spices or zests to salt create subtle flavors, beautiful colors and a variety of textures. They can be used for savory recipes, desserts, margarita rims, to garnish dishes or to place out during a dinner party. I made a red wine-infused salt, Earl Grey-infused salt, a lime salt and lavender-infused salt and they all turned out fabulous! I especially love the red wine salt, as it has a beautiful shade of pink and the Earl Grey salt because of the texture and perfect flavor it adds to the salt. I’ve also made raspberry and pomegranate salt for cookies and they turned out great too! Just get creative with making these flavored salts and happy infusing!

Wine-Infused salt
1/4 cup salt
1 tablespoon red wine

Stir the wine and salt together, until the color is present throughout the salt. Use in recipes, garnish desserts or place a small bowl out for a special dinner.

Lime Salt
1/4 cup salt
2 teaspoons lime zest

Combine salt and lime zest and mix with a fork. You can either leave the zest in the salt or strain it. Use for margarita rims or savory recipes.

Earl Grey-Infused Salt
1/4 cup salt
1 teaspoon Earl Grey tea

Combine salt and Earl Grey herbs. Try in dessert recipes.

Lavender-Infused Salt
1/4 cup salt
2 tablespoons fresh lavender

Combine salt and lavender and store in an air-tight jar to infuse the lavender flavor. The longer it’s stored, the stronger the scent and taste. Remove the lavender and use for desserts or even in savory dishes!
