Flor de Sal is premium, hand-harvested sea salt from Portugal. Young salt crystals are skimmed from the surface of salt ponds. This is a mild finishing salt with a crisp texture. Flor de Sal comes from the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve in the Eastern Algarve of Portugal. Manual harvesting and natural evaporation mean more than just a nostalgic attitude of keeping up a millennial tradition. First, this method minimizes the impurity content to guarantee a naturally white flower of sea salt. Secondly, this keeps the naturally grown crystals intact, resulting in a fine, flaky salt that crumbles between the fingers. With its slight sweetness, Flor de Sal brings a special taste to all prepared dishes. Use it as a table-salt, for seasoning carpaccios and salads, and for grilling fish or meat, as its crystals dissolve quickly.
