Malt Vinegar Salt

This was definitely an experiment.  Be prepared for your house to smell like vinegar for a day or two!

I was giving this as a gift, plus I wanted to keep some for me so I doubled the recipe that I’ve listed.  Probably also the reason it took a little while longer to dry out than the original recipe said.  How cute is that little jar (Target!)?  The label I made using clear circle Avery labels.

This picture was taken after about 1/2 a day – the mixture was still wet and had not started to dry out.  Mine took a little over a day and half.  I even took it off the original sheet after about a day and transferred it to a clean, dry plate, which seemed to help it dry out a little faster.


Malt Vinegar Salt

Yield: 1/2 cup

6 tablespoons coarse salt

1 tablespoon corn starch

1/4 cup malt vinegar

Combine all the ingredients and stir. Pour the mixture onto a rimmed baking sheet and spread in an even, thin layer. Let stand at room temperature, uncovered for up to a day and 1/2.

Rake with a fork until it becomes the texture of coarse salt. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
