A good home chef knows how to enhance a dish using salt by complimenting other flavors rather than rendering them "salty." Sea salt comes from the Caribbean (the Cayman Islands), France, Ireland, Italy, and the Northeastern United States (from the Maine and Cape Cod region). France's sea salt, known as fleur de sel , or "flower of salt," is widely believed to be the standard-bearer of all sea salts. It is also known as sal del mare or sale marino.
Our unrefined, gourmet quality Sea Salt is solar-evaporated pacific sea salt. In the harvesting of sea salt, seawater is collected in big trays, and staged outdoors where the sun and wind evaporate the water, leaving behind the salt. Seawater is packed with 84 natural minerals and natural sea salt contains trace amounts of iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, zinc, and iodine.
