I love to mix spices!
But mostly I love to use my own spice mixes in my cooking. This particular one, I call My “Sodom and Gomorrah”…
It is a mixture of equal amounts of medium grind Sea Salt, White and Black Sesame Seeds and dried Garlic Flakes. The size of the grind on the sea salt is very important. Ideally, as seen in the photo at left, the sea salt, sesame seeds and the garlic flakes are all close to the same size.
This mix is a perfect substitute for plain table salt. If you or a loved one is trying to cut down on salt for health or water retention reasons, this mixture does not skimp on flavor. In fact, with the addition of the garlic, it can be argued that there are health benefits that make this a perfect alternative. The sesame seeds are rich in minerals like iron and calcium; Vitamin B1 and E as well. Best of all, Sesame seeds include antioxidants and anti-cancer properties.
So yes, Sodom and Gomorrah look to the salt mix, but a heavenly useful mixture. Taste and health benefits!
Making the mixture is very easy…
Equal parts –
Coarse ground Sea Salt
Course dried Garlic Flakes
White Sesame Seeds
Black Sesame Seeds
Once you have the mix, use as a topping for eggs (anything you would ordinarily add salt as a condiment). It is amazing sprinkled onto of baking bread or rolls. The heat in the oven makes the seeds open up, making your kitchen smell fabulous. Roasted garlic and the sea salt adds another layer of flavors on the bread.
Just imagine the possiblities!
