Rabarbersylt att göra mycket av

Vårens första löksalt

Här har jag gjort ett salt med olika sorters lök, bland annat gräslök och piplök från trädgården.I en skål lägger jag grovhackad gul lök, en hel vitlök i skalade klyftor, gräslök/piplök, en bit purjo samt zuccini. Detta mixas till en någorlunda slät smet. Sedan rör jag i finkornigt salt så att det blir i mängd ca 1/4 av smeten. Det blir en vattnig och geggig röra. Smeten breds ut i tunt lager på bakplåtspapper i en plåt med höga kanter (där vätskan inte kan rinna ut längs sidorna på pappret) och torkar i ugn tills det hela är snustorrt.
