I’ve been making this seasoning for years, and have occasionally sent it (along with cookies and other baked goods) as part of my Christmas packages. Over the last several years, I’ve come to depend on this for grilling, especially, and I realized a few days ago that I was OUT! It was time to make more!
I whipped up a quick batch (I only made 1/2 batch this time), and I was able to use it for grilling that night. My absolute favorite is to use it on grilled sweet potatoes – so tasty! It’s also great on other vegetables, fish, chicken, & pork. Have fun experimenting!
Gourmet Rosemary Sea Salt
Slightly adapted from Cooking Pleasures magazine
Makes 3 cups
3 Tbsp dried orange peel
2 cups flaky coarse or sea salt
1/4 cup dried rosemary, coarsely crushed
1/4 cup dried parsley
2 tablespoons rainbow blend peppercorns, coarsely crushed*
2 tablespoons dried thyme
2 tablespoons ground coriander
**Note (from orignal recipe)** – Sprinkle this multipurpose seasoning on chicken, pork, fish, baked potatoes or cooked vegetables. Or use it as a brining spice: Combine 3/4 cup of the seasoning with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 gallon of water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Add the meat; refrigerate 1 hour to brine. Then cook the meat as you normally would.
