I am a salt fanatic. Honestly. Truly. and really.

I love salt.

GOOD salt.

There is an incredible difference between the salt found on the table at a typical eatery and the fine flakes of deliciousness we brush across our lives in a bit of savory indulgence.

That said, most salt is savory.

I’m a fan of both savory and a little sweet.

Thus, I’ve created my own little version – Vanilla Salt.

Vanilla Salt

1/2 cup very fine sea salt
2 large vanilla beans

Carefully slice the vanilla bean down the center and scrape the wonderful and precious center from the pod using a flat knife or small spoon. In an airtight container, combine the salt and vanilla together and shake or stir. Allow the flavors to mix for a least one week, shaking every so often to prevent any clumping.

Enjoy.

Some of my favorite ways to include vanilla salt in my kitchen creations are:

Hibiscus Peppercorn Dusted Delicata

Chicken Royale 

Japanese Sweet Potato and Vanilla Sausage Crumble

Coconut Cardamom Shrimp

…and my newest indulgence…

¬†Coconut Almond Milk Cappuccino topped with lick your lips delicious Vanilla Salt – again…can’t wait to see you there! (great with a London Fog too!)
