Herb Salt Recipe by Magnus Nilsson (Fäviken)


Herb Salt

Makes 1.5 kg




  • 1kg unwashed herbs, leaves only, picked on dry and sunny day
    Suitable for this technique could be:
    Lovage, Oregano, Thyme, Lemon balm, Sage, Chives, Tarragon, Mint, Fennel, Currant leaves, Garlic leaves


  • 1kg very good-quality sea salt, chilled




Briefly process the herbs in a food processor, making sure that they do not heat up, as this causes them to lose their aroma.


Combine the herbs with the salt and [ass the mixture through a sieve to remove any unwanted plant fibres.


Transfer the mixture to a vacuum-packed bag and freeze until needed or store in an airtight jar, depending on the result that you want.
