Keep It Savory – The perfect flavored salt to kick off the new year!

In a world where flavor is king Queen, one company is redefining the art of seasoning with a commitment to quality, community, and inclusivity. Keep It Savory, a salt company with a purpose, stands out not just for its exceptional hand-cured salts but also for the values it embodies.

I was beyond ecstatic when I received my package from Keep It Savory in the mail last week.
Included in the box were their Vanilla Bean Sea Salt, Rosemary Sage Sea Salt, Mediterranean Citrus Sea Salt, and their famous Lemon Thyme Sea Salt. With this arriving just before thanksgiving, I knew it was the perfect time to test the salts out.

Now, I know this might be weird, but when it comes to Thanksgiving, I mostly focus on the side. Yeah, the ham and the turkey are great, but you can bet that I will be loading my plate full with Stuffing, Mac and Cheese, and of course… Twice Baked Potatoes!

Twice Baked Potatoes are my favorite dish at Thanksgiving. I wait 364 days thinking about them pretty frequently. How does Keep It Savory tie into this year’s Thanksgiving? Well, this year we used their Lemon Thyme Sea Salt as the finishing salt on the twice baked potatoes, and it turned out AMAZING!!! The flavor was off the charts, the guests were happy, and our bellies were full. what more could you ask for from a thanksgiving dish?

Their salts are high quality and savory, of course, but where Keep It Savory really shines through, is their brand itself.

    1. Hey Mike,
      We sure think it is. Certainly a savory win for ALL THE COOKIES. But we also like it on roasted sweet potatoes…and it pairs super well with cumin so we often use it in tacos, too! If you try it, let us know what you think!

  1. Thanks for the super lovely write-up, Joey!
