This is truly the best of the best of French gourmet sea salts. Fleur de Sel is from the Guérande region of France. Known as “the caviar of salts” and is accepted by many chefs as the best of all sea salts. Fleur de Sel is the first harvest of the season. The crystals form on the very top layer of the salt ponds and are hand-harvested by barely skimming the surface. The second layer is harvested by machine and called Gray Salt. True “Fleur de Sel” can only originate from France. It has a delicate flavor, a moist texture, and a rich, sweet flavor that melts as it touches the tongue. Not only is this among the best tasting salts, it also has the highest mineral content and is naturally low in sodium making it delicious and healthy. Fleur de Sel is a natural compliment to steamed/grilled veggies, salads and roasted or baked meats.
