Lemon Salt

For as far back as I can remember, I’ve always loved lemons. In fact, it’s not just that I love them…I crave them. Maybe this is my body’s way of telling me that I’m deficient in something (vitamin C perhaps?), but whatever it is, I just can’t seem to get enough of them! Lemon water for me is equal parts water and lemon juice. When I go to restaurants I actually ask for a little plate of lemons to go along with my water (I promise that’s the only OCPD thing I do when it comes to ordering food).
I wonder if my parents ever did this to me
Since I’ve already presented you with a salt recipe that incorporates my favorite condiment (sriracha salt), why not give you a second “salt recipe” that incorporates my favorite garnish (well for me it’s not so much a garnish as an appetizer, but you get my drift).

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup coarse kosher salt
  • vest from 2 medium sized lemons
What you need to do:
  1. Grate the peel of the two lemons and set it in a bowl to dry for one day.
  2. Once the peel has dried, combine with the kosher salt and store in a airtight container to let the flavors meld.

      To be honest, I’m not too sure…but my guess is quite a while given it’s nothing more than salt and dried lemon rind.

    I love lemons, too. I live in the tropics, so leaving things out to dry doesn’t always work. I was wondering if it would be possible to dry them in a low oven?

    I can’t get enough of lemon! I’m a lemon with water gal too. I’ll be making this for sure…I already have ideas swimming in my head on uses for it…one of them involves tequila 😉

      I too am obsessed with lemons…to the point that I’ll eat them like oranges sometimes. What did you end up trying it on?
