I’ve been meaning to share the DIY + recipe for this Herbs de Provence sea salt for a while now; we use it on SO much in our kitchen (and now I need to go back and link to this post all the times I’ve mentioned it over the past 6 years, haha)! We use it on eggs, roasted veggies, chicken, fish, salad, soup, etc. It’s a perfect blend of herbs and chunky sea salt. I first spotted the recipe on Elizabeth Anne Designs when my friend Rebekah contributed this post! I’ve been making it ever since and giving it as gifts for Christmas, Mother’s Day, as favors for guests at A Daily Gathering dinners, etc. I always have several jars on hand for when the jar on our spice rack runs out or when I need a gift!
If you shop in bulk, it’s incredibly affordable. The most expensive part of this gift is the jars, which could be found a little cheaper, but I wanted to use Weck jars. They were $2.50 each. The herbs and salt totaled $25, and I made approximately 20 2.7 oz. jars, so that’s about $0.80 per jar for the ingredients. So about $3.30 per jar. A perfect little gift for any food-loving person in your life! You could pair it with a wooden spoon and a pack of linen towels for a gift with a little more substance if you wanted!
Herbs de Provence sea salt is super simple to make. Zoe helped me with this batch early this morning. I was planning on shooting this really fast before the girls woke up, but she scrambled out of bed uncharacteristically early this morning, and I’m so happy she did. We got to spend an hour together on this little project and it was precious. She sang her way through measuring the herbs, and couldn’t take the smile off her face. She’s so incredibly eager to do anything and everything in the kitchen. Hopefully that attitude will stick when she’s actually old enough to wash dishes.
Hope you love this recipe, use it in your kitchen, and gift it as much as we do! P.S. Please forgive the overload of Zoe photos…I couldn’t help but included all of these. The lighting & her face were magic this morning.
Herbs de Provence Sea Salt
NOTE: I usually make a large batch of herbs de provence sea salt; the dried herbs are incredibly inexpensive when I buy them in bulk, and then I have lots on hand. I don’t have measurements for this DIY, because it really just depends on how much you want to make. You basically want to use a 1:1 ratio of salt to herbs. So if you use 1 tbsp of each herb (for a total of 8 tbsp), you’ll want to use 8 tbsp of sea salt. Also, if one or two of these herbs aren’t available, I’ll just keep them out of that particular batch…it’s not a huge deal!
