"Orange" Cretan Sea Salt (Fleur De Sel)
The rinds of citrus fruits give this zesty orange sea salt an extra sour kick, giving your dish a subtle tang. It's especially useful in cuisines like the Caribbean and North Africa, where oranges are frequently used (as they are in Sicilian cuisine), and the flavor balance between sweet, acidic orange, and salt is perfect.
The crystals that form on the top during the evaporation process of the seawater are known as "Flower of the Salt" (Fleur De Sel) and are hand-harvested from the south shore of Crete. The Cretan sea salt is naturally high in iodine, nutrients, and minerals all of which are essential to our health and body.
Cretan Sea Salt, Garlic, Mustard Powder, and Curry
Try it sprinkled on chicken, steak, salads, sandwiches, eggs, avocado toast, fruit salad, roasted vegetables, choco desserts like truffles or choco cookies.
BONUS TIP: Put some of this on the rim of your negroni glass, in the same way you would use our lemon sea salt with a Margarita
◉ Sea salt blends should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve their flavor.
◉ Depending on how they are stored, the spices in seasoned salts may begin losing their potency and full flavor after 6 months or so. If you want to, you can still use the salt.
