This is our third recipe in our DIY SALT ‘n SEASONINGS series.  Rosemary and mustard is the perfect combination to create any honey and mustard dish to die for! All it needs is a drizzle of raw honey and you are ready to impress even your mother-in-law! Thank you Izelle Hoffman.

Rosemary Mustard Salt Seasoning


70g Oryx Desert Salt

10g mustard seeds

5g mustard powder

5g dried rosemary

2g onion seeds


1.Prepare flavourings: Ingredients should be dry and small (ground, chopped, flaked)

If you prefer using fresh rosemary, dry the herbs in the oven at a low temperature (60-80’C) or in a dehydrator.

2. Combine the whole mustard seeds, mustard powder, rosemary and onion seeds with the salt. Combine using a small bowl, mix well but avoid pulverising the salt.

3. Store the mix in an airtight container, or ziplock bag.

4, Ideally let it sit at least a day before using. Intensity of flavour will diminish over time, but it can last for a couple of months.

Ideal for meat dishes like grilled chicken, stir-fry, roast or even as braai salt. Combine with raw honey for the perfect honey & mustard dish.
