Le Guérandais Fleur de Sel de Guérande Sea Salt
Le Guérandais Fleur de Sel de Guérande Sea Salt is composed of snowy white crystals, with no additives, and is highly prized by chefs.
In Guérande, France, the Fleur de Sel crystallizes in summer on the surfaces of sea water where it is carefully hand raked and harvested in the late afternoon, when the weather conditions are just right, by the salt farmer. 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.
Fleur de Sel translates as "Flower of Salt" and is also known as the "Caviar of Salt". The flavor is marvelous in comparison to other salts. Unlike processed salts, Fleur de Sel is a natural source of potassium, calcium, magnesium, copper and iodine. The taste is a delicate balance of the numerous salts, minerals, and micronutrients—this is truly the finest salt available.
For maximum flavor, sprinkle Fleur de Sel de Camargue by hand over foods just before serving to draw out the full flavors of the other ingredients. This is a natural compliment to fresh salads and vegetable dishes. An excellent all-around seasoning.
