Nothing is better than a handmade holiday gift. In my book, bonus points if it can be consumed and if it adds a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to my pantry. This spiced citrus salt and zesty pepper blend is my favorite spice combo! Salt & Pepper, you rock!!!
Preheat oven to 275oF. Line sheet pan with parchment.
Mix salt with citrus zests and ground seeds. Mix until well combined. Spread evenly on the parchment paper and bake until the zest is fully dehydrated, about 20 minutes. Check after about 15 minutes and stir the salt, turning over the bottom which may still be a bit wet. Once completely dried, remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Transfer to sterilized airtight containers. Stores well for at least 3 months.
Makes 4 cups and will fill 8 100ml (3.4 ounce) jars.
Grind each seed separately, in batches as needed, in a spice grinder, mini chopper or food processor.
Mix all spices together.
Transfer to sterilized airtight containers. Stores indefinitely.
Makes 2 1/2 cups and will fill 8+ 100ml (3.4 ounce) jars.
