Fancy name for a basic dried spice mix... but it is YUM! This is from the Vegetarian Cookbook - and even tho I am not a vegetarian (would have been diss-owned by my parents who were BOTH butchers and my Hubby, John the Butcher!) I have found some fantastic recipes in there!
What's more - the Vegetarian cook book even has hand creams and bath bombs and the like!!
Anyway... back to the salt. Basically it was dried lemon, rosemary, garlic and a little salt.
By the time I dried it in the oven it looked black! But that didn't matter. It didn't taste "black" or burnt, it just looked black. I think Dehydrators are the way to go.
This is lovely on sandwiches and even just salads. It is hardly salty at all and I would suggest doubling the salt from 2 tbls to 4 tbls to get a bit of salt in it - but that would depend on your taste
John used it on a lamb roast and it was nice, but faint, you would have to put quite a bit on... hence why I suggest more salt - it would make it go further by making it taste stronger I think.
LESSON: patience is a must when drying in the oven
LESSON: grow your own herbs and fruit!!! Much nicer!!
LESSON: the garlic took SO much more time to dry, even tho I sliced the thicker ones - I suggest you mince it first and then put the minced garlic on the tray to dry.
