This is a gourmet finishing salt that is highly desired in fine cuisine. To make this salt we start with the filtered pristine water of Annapolis Basin. In all our salt making processes we evaporate this water until salt crystals begin to form. To allow the Fleur de Sel to form specifically, we allow the salt to naturally and slowly refine itself. In the evaporation process, once the water has evaporated to a certain point, calcium salts start to precipitate out of the water (sinking to the bottom) and large white Fleur de sel crystals form on the surface of the water. We harvest these crystals right from the surface of the water so they do not mix with the other sea salts. This salt is highly sought after by culinary experts because it has a subtle flavor (milder than other table salts and most sea salts) and the high moisture content in the crystals enables it to stay in the mouth longer and give a slightly crunchy texture to the food it garnishes. We are packaging this salt in little ceramic containers of 150g. With each container of Fleur de Sel we include a little muscle shell that can be used to serve the salt.
