video: sally making herb salt with lynnne rossetto kasper (now there’s no excuse not to make it!)

(Video link here.) As promised in yesterday’s post, here ‘s the video of  Sally on public radio’s The Splendid Table showing host Lynne Rossetto Kasper how she makes her Fragrant Herb Salt, and the many possibilities for improvising with it, from roast chicken to vegetables to butter cookies. You’ll find the recipes for it and Sally’s other favorites – French-Style Chocolate Cake and Foolproof Roast Chicken – here.

Listen to Sally and Lynne discussing all three recipes here:

Thanks Lynne!

    Brilliant idea! I’ve never made herbed salt and will be doing so today. You are one smart (butter) cookie! I am a fan.

    Love this rosemary salt. I have been following you on the Splendid Table. Your web site is the bomb.

    Wow! So, my wife and I heard the broadcast in the car and raced home to make your salt. It’s fantastic! Then today we made pork spare ribs – and instead of a texas style dry rub, we used the Tuscan salt – it was really great. Dry rubbed the ribs an hour an a half before cooking for three and a half hours in the oven on a rack at 275.

    Instead of BBQ sauce, we also made the “mayo” that was on Lynn’s same show, using no eggs but just milk and oil. We added a generous tablespoon of Tuscan salt, a tsp or so of BBQ sauce, a tsp of mustard, and a tsp of vinegar. It went wonderfully with both the ribs, and with the sweet corn we had.

    Thanks so much for what I’m sure is an amazing new staple in our kitchen.

    I lOVE hearing of all the ways you used the herb salt – I hadn’t thought of them. Just goes to show, you really can use it on just about everything.

    Awesome. I’ll make some tonight with fresh herbs from the garden. And… is that your new kitchen Sally :-) ?

    Hi Fast, That’s the OLD kitchen, last gasp. Took the zinc top island, cabinet doors and the big old funky stove and made a new one. Stay tuned. There’s music all the time at the new place…
