Sugpo Asin Salt - Philippines
4 oz (sal38)
Moist and naturally pink like the color of prawns (hence the name sugpo which means shrimp), this hollowed crystal Phillipino sea salt is both rich and rare. Farmed by hand for just half the year during "dry season" and subject to the whims of weather, only limited quantities are ever available. (Each bed can only produce 80-100 pounds per day in that time.) With a full-bodied flavor, it's a welcomed addition to the table. Boasting a unique mouth feel and balance of minerals pleasing to touch and taste bud alike.
