Fleur De Sel de Guerande

8.8 oz. bag (sal1002)
Culled from marshes in southern Brittany, these snowy white crystals have been called the caviar of salts. As one would expect, the quality control surrounding a product so highly prized is meticulous, to say the least. Not only is the salt hand-tended in the traditional Celtic manner using wooden rakes but it’s harvested in the late afternoon when the sun has lost much of its heat. As a result, the salt has a moist texture and delicate flavor with faint shades of violet. To many, it is the best of all salts.
