The coastal town of Maldon, Essex, has been the center of a salt producing area since the middle ages, although legend has it that the secret of salt-making from sea water was discovered here over 2,000 years ago when the Romans ruled Britain. The Maldon Crystal Salt Company is still a small family concern, operating from a riverside site it has occupied for more than a hundred years and continues to develop the traditional saltmaker's craft to produce the soft, white, flaky crystals unique to this area.

The pyramid-shaped salt crystals, characteristic of Maldon Salt, are fragile enough to crumble easily between the fingers and have a totally different taste from the regular grains of table salt. It is an interesting exercise to taste common salt alongside Maldon Salt. The common salt sits uncomfortably on the tongue and has an underlying bitterness. Maldon Salt is milder, has the flavor of sea spray, and is free from the chemical tang of common salt. Unlike most salts containing additives to stop them from caking in damp weather, Maldon Salt is a completely natural product, retaining valuable seawater trace-elements.

Delia Smith recently included Maldon Salt among her 'essential ingredients', and judging by the recommendations found in the books of some of England's best known chefs from Jamie Oliver to Nigella Lawson, she is in good company.

Maldon Sea Salt
A wonderfully refreshing finishing salt on veggies, meats and salads. This is my second box.It is so tasty that occasionally I take a small dab on my finger to taste by itself!

Salty but no bitterness
Maldon Salt flakes are salty but not bitter like regular salt. I have used it on watermelon, salads, omelets, tomatoes...awesome slightly salty flavor. It 'melts' onto the food.

Great for caramel and chocolate
I made a salted caramel and milk chocolate layer cake using this salt in the middle and on top of the cake. Very nice flavor and just right to cut the sweetness of the milk chocolate and caramel.

Maldon Salt is the Best

I Love this salt
This salt is just delicious. I never thought I could care about salt but sprinkle this on everything from simple buttered bread to steak to well anything. Don't cook with it, use it to season your food right before eating for a light crunchy salt flavor. It is probably the world's most perfect salt.

Nice taste!
I have really enjoyed having this in my kitchen. I always see the TV chefs with their salt cellars and sprinkling away, so now I am too! The salt has a nice taste, almost sweet?? I use it when I boil pasta or potatoes and also on my salads with oil & vinegar. Good price for a yummy salt!

My Favorite Salt
I actually keep about 4 - 5 different types of salt in my home at any given time. I tried this salt for two reasons. One, it is British and since my husband is English, it seemed appropriate. And two, because every famous chef I saw on TV or whose cookbook I read was using it. Gordon Ramsey. Thomas Keller. Alton Brown (although he also favors Kosher). So I figured let's try it. I love it. It adds a really clean hit of salt to any dish. I don't use it for salting water for boiling but I do sprinkle a pinch on to finish any dish. I love this stuff.
