How to Make Herbes Salees (Salted Herbs)
- Finely chop all herbs and carrots, and mix them together in a bowl. The original recipe only specified using equal amounts of all the herbs, so adjust the amounts as needed to fill the canning jar you choose.
- Pack the chopped mixture into a sterilized canning jar in layers, generously sprinkling each layer with the coarse salt. Once jar is filled, sprinkle 2 tbs of cold water over top of everything. Cover jar and set aside for a few days before using. Keeps well if you only use clean utensils to scoop it out each time.
- Use as a seasoning when making soups, stews, omelets, stuffing, etc.
- Store jar in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.
