Fleur De Sel de Camargue

Our favorite salt for cooking or for seasoning is the French Fleur De Sel de Camargue.  Fleur De Sel de Camargue is hand raked and harvested in the Brittany salt flats of France. The name Fleur De Sel 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.

We keep a salt pig or small jar of this by the stove, for use in cooking.  And, after allowing to dry out of the tin for a few days, it is perfect to add to our salt grinder, for seasoning as well.  We use it on everything.  As it is very salty tasting, a little bit goes a long way, which also reduces your sodium intake, as you need less to add a “salty” flavor to any dish.

It is readily sourced from Salt Works or gourmet grocers.
