1. This sounds wonderful! I’ve tried fleur de sel (love it on chocolate desserts and homemade caramel!) and Himalayan pink salt (I made bath essential oil salt scrubs with it for gifts one time) but never tried the gray, Celtic, smoked salt or red salt… I bet it would be fun to do a salt tasting party – like the way you would do a chocolate, wine, or cheese tasting party – a variety of dishes or appetizers incorporating various salts or flavored salts as the main flavoring. Mmmm. By the way, Microplane makes the best zesters and graters, in my (humble) opinion… and they’re pretty much available at any large home goods store. I use citrus zest a lot too so this is one of my most well-loved tools in my kitchen! PS: Your mortar and pestle looks like the real deal – from South America, I presume? 🙂

      Thanks for the recommendation!
      Yes it’s authentic, the mortar and pestle was a gift brought back from Mexico from one of my dearest friends. 🙂

    I love thyme on fish- I just sprinkle dried
    thyme on along with cracked pepper and a bit of
    fresh lemon juice and then bake the fish( usually
    haddock but halibut ,cod or tilapia or salmon)
    Super yum! ( also thyme is good sprinkled on
    top of plain yogurt spread on salmon or chicken , then baked)

      Thanks! I tend to be pretty boring when it comes to fish, s+p and lemon are my usual suspects. I will definitely try the thyme in yogurt, I’m making a fresh batch of yogurt right now. 🙂

    Your post reminds me that I have a big jar of rosemary salt in the pantry I need to start using. Would be perfect on the baked fries I’ve been making lately. My mom sent me some meyer lemons from her tree, so I’ll try lemon salt soon, just need to pick up some salt flakes.

  4. I hope you are bringing some citrisalt when you come to WV to perform in the Trillium concert Gather the Village and Dance this weekend.

  5. I love gourmet salts. I’ve been meaning to make some citrus varieties, especially since we have some really nice local citrus around. Thanks for the reminder. Lemon & thyme are lovely together!
