How to make wild garlic salt
- A little difficulty
- 150g Salt, choose a natural, good quality flaked, fine or coarse grain: sea salt, kosher salt, Himalayan, etc.
- Wild garlic leaves
- STEP 1
Gather as many wild garlic leaves as you wish. Check the wild garlic for any stray weeds and insects.
- STEP 2
Dehydrate the wild garlic (or use the lowest setting on your oven with the door slightly open). The length of time this will take depends on the ingredients you are using. Refer to your dehydrator’s manual for timings.
- STEP 3
When dry and crisp, blend into a powder in a food processor or grind using a pestle and mortar. For each cup of sea salt you will need 4 tsp of ground, dried flavouring.
- STEP 4
Pour into a labelled jar. Dried wild garlic powder will keep for a year and can be used to add flavour to soups, baking, etc. Measure 4 tsp of wild garlic powder and mix with the salt.
- STEP 5
Pour the salt and ground flavouring ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly. If you wish to have a finer ground salt, then grind in a pestle and mortar or food processor until the salt granules are your desired size. Store in a clean glass jar with a label.
