making your own herb salt

This idea came from another website called nourished kitchen, and I thought it was a great idea for now in our New Zealand gardens/kitchens, we can harvest the herbs now before winter.  I have changed the ingredients slightly.

Lemon Chive Seasoning Salt

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: makes about 1 1/2 cups
Nice to have on hand for flavoring meats, fish or grains in a pinch, this homemade lemon chive seasoning salt is one of my favorites - combining some of the flavors we use most frequently in my kitchen: salt, smoked pepper, lemon, chives and parsley. It is particularly nice sprinkled over chicken.
       1/4 cup unrefined sea salt
       1/3 cup smoked black peppercorns
       1/2 cup dried lemon peel
       1/4 cup dried parsley or oregano
       1/3 cup dried minced onion or dried chives or garlic chives
       2 tablespoons dulse, or here in New Zealand seaweed flakes like karengo would be good
Pour all the ingredients into a medium-sized mixing bowl and stir until well-combined. Then, working in batches, place all ingredients into a spice grinder or into a pitcher of a high-powered blender, and process until they form a fine powder.
Transfer the seasoning salt to a glass jar or other container, close the lid tightly, and store in a cool place for up to one year.
