Christmas spiced salt


Ever since I bought Nigella Christmas I have loved this salt.

It is perfect with fish and chicken, but to be honest, I used it all year round for everything.

Small jars filled with this salty goodness make a perfect gift on their own or as part of a food basket.



Christmas spiced salt

Ingredients (enough for 1 x 500 ml jar)

  • 250 g sea salt or maldon salt
  • 2 tsp red peppercorns
  • 2 tsp crushed dried red chillies
  • 4 star anise


  • Put all the ingredients into a bowl.
  • Mix everything well.
  • Transfer to a sterilized jar and seal tightly.


  • This keeps for about a year in a cool, dark place.
  • When I give spice mixes as presents, I either put them in a pepper mill or cute little jars. On the front I put a label with the name and on the back one with the explanation of what to use it with and how long to keep it.
