Blueberry Salted Duck

Blueberry salt is very simple to make and easily worth the effort. With freeze-dried blueberries, both the nutrients and flavors are fully intact. All of the sugar has been dried and crystallized. Adding blueberries to salt creates an innate balance. The sweet and salty seasoning is perfect for vegetables, lettuces, poultry, beef, game and even chocolate.

Recipe created by Chef Jamie Simpson, The Culinary Vegetable Institute



  • 1oz (30g) freeze dried blueberries
  • 1oz (30g) sea salt



  1. With your fingers or a spice grinder, try and match the level of coarseness of the blueberries to the salt. For finer salts, use a spice grinder, for coarse salts, crush between your fingers.
  2. Store in a resealable airtight container with a desiccant pack if possible.


For a special occasion, sprinkle the flavorful Blueberry Salt over roasted duck for an exquisite finish. For extra deliciousness, add blueberry-soaked syrup as a sauce as well.
