Smitten, I tell you!
And since I've been making marmalade and stuff, I thought I'd give them a whirl.
I made lemon salt and lime salt. They're so good.
All you have to do is zest the fruit and mix it with salt. I used the zest of 1 fruit and mixed it with a half cup of salt.
The zest makes the salt sort of damp, so I tried letting the zest dry out for a while to see if it made a difference. It didn't. The salts work great just like this - no fuss, no muss.
Here are a few ways to use the salts:
- adult drinks
- grilled meats
- skillet seafood and meat dishes [Loved it on pork.]
- potatoes [Lime salt on sweet potatoes!]
- oven fried chicken
- steamed vegetables
- Zest of one lemon or lime
- 1/2 cup salt
