I am a salt fanatic. Honestly. Truly. and really.
I love 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.
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.
Some of my favorite ways to include vanilla salt in my kitchen creations are:
…and my newest indulgence…
