These exceptionally flavorful crystals are hand raked and harvested in France. The name comes from the aroma of violets that develops as the salt dries. Only the premium, top layer of the salt bed is used. Each signature container is sealed with a cork top and signed by the Salt Raker who harvested it.
The flavor is marvelous in comparison to other salts. Unlike processed salts, Fleur De Sel is a natural source of potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper and iodine. The taste is a delicate balance of the numerous salts, minerals, and micronutrients, this is truly the finest salt available.
Fleur De Sel de Camargue's small flaky crystals have a moist texture and a slight grey and pink hue. For maximum flavor, sprinkle fleur-de-sel by hand over foods just before serving to draw out the full flavors of the other ingredients. This is a natural complement to fresh salads and vegetable dishes. An excellent all-around seasoning.
