Gourmet Salt-Sel Gris

Hey everyone,

We are always on the lookout for premium products to show off our high quality lavender. This weekend we added what some consider to be the world's best culinary salt. This salt is hand-harvested sea salt, moist & grey in color due to the high mineral and nutrient-rich clay of the region.

This salt is "moist" & unrefined, and extremely high in minerals & nutrients due to the area it is from and method that it is harvested. "Paludiers" are the tradesman that hand harvested this great salt from Guerande, Brittany, France, using the celtic method of harvesting that has been done for centuries. It is grey from the nutrient rich clay in the salt flats where it is collected. Clean, fresh, with less bitter aftertaste than other salts, it is exceptional on fine chocolates, caramels, salads, roasted meat & veggies, and fish & seafood.

Salt has an important role in Human History, and has changed the coarse of history for thousands of years. Different salts have different crystallization, or textures, which lend different flavors to foods. For example, you would bake with fine salt, but use coarse salts for finishing a dish to complement the food and provide a flavorful crunchy texture.

A pinch of these unique and rare salts, with extra flavor from our certified organic lavender flowers, bring out the best in almost every food, even sweets. You have to experience these Premier salts to understand their power to awaken the palate and how they excite and unite flavors in dishes to the highest degree. Use on a margarita glass to add the clean, crisp, and slightly floral taste of lavender. Great on the table for guests to use and experience their crystal, crunchy and always unique effects on food. Used by many fine chocolatiers as the finish on their gourmet chocolates.

Comes in a glass jar with a wooden spoon and built in spoon holder on the jar.
