Red Wine Sea Salt Recipe

Add Flourish to Meals With Homemade Red-Wine-Infused Sea Salt

If you've always assumed that making infused sea salt is best left to the experts, think again. Rich, earthy red-wine-infused fleur de sel is easy to make at home, no special equipment necessary. Watch the video to learn the easy method for making the salt, which is a lovely accent for snacks like heirloom tomatoes, cheeses, and even roasted brussels sprouts. Packaged in a pretty jar, it makes for a lovely, creative gift for your foodie friends.

Red Wine Sea Salt

Red Wine Sea Salt


Use the red wine sea salt as a finishing touch on rich meats, seafood, and robustly flavored vegetables, such as brussels sprouts.

Red Wine Sea Salt


1 bottle of robust red wine, such as Syrah, Red Zinfandel, or Cabernet Sauvignon
1-1 1/2 cups of fleur de sel


  1. In a small saucepan, bring the wine to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, and cook until thick but not syrupy, and about a tablespoon of liquid remains. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Add 1 cup of salt to the pot, and stir gently to combine. If the salt doesn't absorb all of the wine reduction, keep adding salt until all of the liquid is absorbed, up to 1 1/2 cups salt.
  3. Spread the salt on a parchment-covered baking sheet to dry. (This may take a couple days.)
  4. Store in an airtight jar.

So, I made this on Wednesday night and have tried to help the drying process along by putting it in the oven at 200 for about 30 minutes at a time once or twice a day - the stuff is still totally clumpy and kind of sticky. I can break it up, but if I put it in a jar it totally clumps. I'm debating about whether to just let it be clumpy and break it up when I want to use it, or to grind it all and put it in a container with some rice, or possibly one of those little "pods" that come in some meds to keep them dry. Suggestions?
