  • About

Herbed salt can be used at will on chops, steaks, guinea fowl, and the like. Great stuff.


  • 1 large chicken
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, slightly bashed
  • 3 sprigs


To make the herbed salt, mince all the herbs and garlic as finely as possible - use a food processor, a blender, or a very good sharp knife. Mix with the salt in a fairly large bowl and let it stand for 24 hours at room temperature in order to dry out.

Place the herbed salt in an airtight jar and keep it in the pantry, larder, or refrigerator, to use when required.
