Infused with the essential oil of lemon, grapefruit, orange or lime, this citrus salt will add intense flavor. Sprinkle on salad, roasted vegetables, chicken or fish.

Package salt in a nicely shaped glass jar, such as Bon Maman Preserves. Cut parchment paper into a round shape, two inches larger than jar top.

Finish with string or cord and a tag: Happy Mother’s Day.

1 cup sea salt flakes (Maldon)
