How To Make Flavored Sugars and Flavored Salts

Dry your ingredients first.  For citrus peels, rose hips, or rose petals, I let dry in the pantry on a paper towel. For berries, I would dry in a dehydrator.  Herbs I put loosely in a paper bag with the stems upright to dry.  After they are dry, you can use a coffee grinder to grind to a fine powder, crush the herbs by hand, or for larger pieces, leave whole and mix 50/50 with organic sugar.
