Humidity Protection

This sturdy flip-top salt box held plenty of salt and provided easy access to it, accommodating most testers’ hands. While somewhat vulnerable to humidity, this box was great at shielding salt from messes. It was a breeze to fill and clean and could be opened with one hand; a small handle made it convenient to lift for on-the-fly seasoning.

Portuguese Saltcream Sea Salt

Portuguese Saltcream Sea Salt and Hawaiian Black Lava Sea SaltPortuguese Saltcream Sea Salt and Hawaiian Black Lava Sea Salt

Durability

Portuguese fisherman chased the prized codfish across the North Atlantic. In the days before refrigeration, salt preserved the fish on the long voyage home. Thus bacalhau, the backbone of Portuguese cuisine, was born. This pristinely white sea salt is hand-harvested. Saltcream is a saltpan's delicate top-most layer perfect for any occasion that calls for fleur de sel.


Hawaiian Black Lava Sea Salt

Harvested on the remote and pristine island of Molokai, this Hawaiian Black Lava Sea Salt is blended with activated charcoal before it is dried to form large crystals. Use it to finish eggs, salads, or desserts. Enjoy a dramatic look when you pair it with our white pepper.

The Hawaiian Island archipelago is extremely isolated from other landmasses. Within the Hawaiian Islands, the island of Molokai's waters remains virtually untouched from pollution leading it to have some of the purest seawater. This seawater is mixed with quality activated charcoal and dried specifically to ensure all the nutrients and minerals in the seawater are retained. The black Hawaiian sea salt is then bottled and labeled under the supervision of the Salt Masters Guild of Hawaii. This guild was founded in order to maintain the ancient tradition of salt crafting that has been part of the island's culture for centuries. Although the dominant flavor of these crystals is pure salt, the flavor is very bright and strong, due to the presence of the trace minerals. Ingredients: Sea salt, activated charcoal from coconut shell.
