To package the salts for gifts, find small (about 2-ounce) resealable jars or containers—1 cup of salt will fill 4 containers. For decoration, add a piece of baked lemon peel to the jar of lemon salt; a small rosemary sprig to the rosemary salt; and a piece of scraped vanilla bean to the vanilla salt.
There are lots of other flavor possibilities…how about garlic or lavender?
