Bacon Parmesan Salt

Ingredients

1 cup iodized salt

¼ cup cooked bacon bits

¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

Instructions

Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until fully combined.  Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.  Enjoy!

Buffalo Ranch Salt

Ingredients

2 tablespoons buffalo sauce

1 tablespoon dry ranch seasoning

1 cup sea salt

Instructions

Preheat oven to 170F (or the lowest setting on your oven)

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined.

Spread salt on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 2 hours.  Every 30 minutes, flip the salt to make sure it doesn’t burn or meld together.

Put salt back into food processor and pulse once more.  The salt should break up and form a finer consistency.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Wine Salt

Ingredients

1 bottle chocolate wine (I like CocoaVine brand)

1 cup sea salt

Instructions

Preheat oven to 170F or your oven’s lowest heat setting.

Pour bottle of wine into a medium saucepan and simmer on low heat until it reduces significantly and becomes a syrup.  This might take 45 minutes to an hour.  Take off of heat.

Place salt and wine reduction in food processor and pulse until well combined.  This mixture will be relatively sticky.

Spread mixture on a parchment lined baking sheet and chop up as much as possible to spread the salt up.

Bake for 2 hours, flipping and chopping it every 30 minutes

Once dried out, return the salt to a food processor and pulse.  The salt should break up and form a thinner/more salt like consistency.
