Rosemary and Smoked Salt Roasted Almonds

When it comes to salt, there’s so much more to explore than plain old iodized. Even beyond kosher and sea salt, there is an entire world of specialty and gourmet salts out there. A unique salt can add the perfect finishing touch to any dish, sweet OR savory. A good, quality salt is more than just sodium, it adds flavor and punch and intensity. With high quality gourmet sea salts like those carried by SaltWorks®, Inc, you get MORE flavor by ultimately using LESS salt.

Like yesterday’s Rosemary and Smoked Salt Roasted Almonds, a gourmet salt can take a dish to delicious new heights. Whether it is a flurry of Himalayan pink salt finishing off your next salad, or a touch of savory smoked salt on your next batch of popcorn. Or hey, sprinkle a bit of flake sea salt on the top of your next batch of chocolate chip cookies (you’ll thank me later).

  13. I would love to use a rosemary + garlic salt blend to mix with olive oil and use as a dipping oil. We’re bringing bread and cheese to our family’s Thanksgiving gathering this year, and the rosemary + garlic + sea salt olive oil combination would be the perfect side for the bread and cheese!

  14. I have a thing for smoked salt — I’ve only had it once or twice before, but my goodness. Weirdly, it tastes amazing mixed into soups. Just a sprinkle and you’re good to go.
