Now we need to put the mix evenly on a baking sheet. To avoid damaging the ingredients, cover everything with some parchment paper. Bake for thirty minutes at 50°C (122°F). After enough time has passed, take out the sheet and let it cool. After you can store your rosemary salt in a jar or any other container you prefer.
