Another Friday, another diy gift. Today I’m sharing a recipe for some Roasted Garlic Salt. This is a finishing salt – just a dash on dishes can add a great roasty flavor of garlic. It such an awesome gift and very easy to make.
-1 head of garlic
-1 cup Kosher salt
-a dash of olive oil
- Preheat oven to 400. Lay out a piece of foil. Place garlic on foil and drizzle some olive oil on it. Wrap the garlic in the foil. Place garlic in oven for 30-40 minutes until garlic is softened.
- Once garlic is cooled, squeeze garlic out of the shell. Mix the salt in with the garlic. Now you need to break up the garlic pieces into the salt. I like to use my hands for this, but I recommend putting some gloves on. Once its all mixed lay the garlic on a cookie sheet.
- Reduce the oven to 200 and put the garlic/salt mix in for 30 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let the salt cool. It should feel dry to the touch. Break up and clumps and put the salt into small containers.
I tripled the recipe to fill these four short Mason jars. I always love adding a cute little tag to the container – I designed a circle tag and a tag-shaped tag. You can download the artwork here:
I printed these on cardstock and used a hole punch to attach. Enjoy!
