Gently collected from salt marshes off the Atlantic Ocean, Fleur de Sel means “The Flower of Salt”. It imparts a delicate flavor of the ocean into everything it touches. Because of the lightness of flavor this salt is best used to garnish dishes just before they are eaten. Sprinkle Fleur de Sel and some freshly cracked black peppercorns onto your next salad or pasta sauce to bring out all the flavors.Six ounce Fleur de Sel is not restricted to savory dishes. Add pinches to your sweet goods to contrast the sweet against the salty. Mix Fleur de Sel with pure maple sugar to make homemade, maple sugar candies. The hint of saltiness balances the sweetness in the candy.
