Grind to a fine powder, sprinkle on everything. Probably not have much flavor but will pack a punch.
Make a salt spice mix with the powder. Should be a recipe around here somewhere...

Here is a good start....

You can add Italian herbs or cumin, paprika and chili powder for a Mexican flavor.
I'm not counting on any flavor, but the cap crystals just draw you into thought. Gave a crunchy squeeze and delved in with a slight nasal draw, immediate brain reaction was"WTF, did I really just do that" moment. Heavy nose running along with lip and cheek burning commenced. Definitely can see infusions or rubs.
