After a huge storm knocked over one of my lemon trees, I decided to use a green Ponderosa lemon to make a citrus salt.
I zested said lemon for one tablespoon and combined it with 1/2 cup of flaked sea salt, rubbing the two together to mix well.
I spread the mixture in a line across a parchment covered baking sheet and left it in a 225 degree oven for one hour. After it cooled, I put it in a salt cellar and can't wait to try it on something.
FYI ~ Did you know salt has been harvested for 8000 years? Animals and humans would die without it (and/or die from too much of it). Wars have been fought over salt. Egyptians burials contained salt. In 1930, Gandhi led 100,000 people in a march to make their own salt, which was illegal under British rule. This act of civil disobedience avoided the salt tax and changed the course of history. And, salt of the earth comes from the book of Matthew in the Christian Bible, from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Just a few salt factoids.
