RECIPE: Lemon Thyme Salt

RECIPE: Lemon Thyme Salt #seasoning #homemade
Earlier this week I shared a sweet recipe for infusing sugar. Today I’m going to share a savory recipe for one of my favorite seasonings, salt! My thyme plant has become a bit unruly in my garden so I decided to prune and harvest some to make a seasoning salt. Lemon has become one of my favorite flavors and it pairs perfectly with fresh thyme so I knew I had to try this recipe from Have Cake, Will Travel.

Lemon Thyme Salt
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Seasoning
Serves: Approx. ½ cup
  • ½ cup fine grain sea salt
  • Zest from 2 medium organic lemons
  • Leaves from approximately 20 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1½ teaspoons onion powder
  1. Combine ingredients in a food processor or clean coffee grinder and pulse several thymes until well blended. The more you pulse, the finer your salt will become.
  2. Store in an airtight container. Will keep at room temperature indefinitely.

I love using this salt to season chicken, fish or spring veggies. You can use it instead of normal salt anytime you think the flavors of lemon and thyme would enhance your dish.
