Our Hardwood Smoked Culinary Sea Salts are hand harvested on the pristine beaches of Bali by a collective of salt farmers. The seawater is filtered through the beach sand then solar evaporated over long periods to form the unique hollow pyramid and cube shapes; showing the natural Divine order of the earth. This is a particularly unique and exotic salt due to the shape and the length of time it takes to create it. These salts are carefully monitored during the evaporation process which is extended as the crystals form layers and tiered structures. It takes at least several months up to over a year to create these beautiful salts. Once the salts are harvested, they are cold smoked in a traditional smokehouse using local hardwoods to infuse flavor and tint the salts a smoky color
This salt is particularly well suited as a finishing salt due to its larger size and shape. The crunch and texture are excellent due to the larger hollow crystals. The smoky aroma is strong however the taste profile is very balanced and smooth. Best suited for finishing/topping steaks, seafood, vegetables and desserts. Due to the larger size it offers the unique ability to partially melt while still retaining a significant amount of crunch. The crystals can also be crushed by the fingers to create a finer and varied texture.
