Rosalie Hart likes to add a generous pinch of seasoned salt to Aunt Charlotte’s bread recipe and just about everything else she prepares. Seasoned salt is a snap to make at home and enhances the savoriness of any dish. This version, although I have altered it just a bit, was given to me by my friend, Donna. Along with other friends, we have salt making get togethers, each contributing fresh herbs from our gardens. There is always a bottle of cold Chardonnay on hand while we work. I whip up large batches during the holidays and give it as gifts to my friends and family in Italian ceramic salt cellars.
