Cornish Sea Salt is known for its purity. The salt is harvested from the turquoise waters off Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula, which have received Grade A accreditation for its cleanliness.
The Cornish Sea Salt has a classic, salty taste. Because of its firm texture and sturdy crunch, expect to experience a burst of flavor. The salt does not require a grinder, but can be sprinkled on food as is, or crumbled lightly with your fingers.
The salt is produced using a steam evaporation process, and then hand-harvested from the evaporation pans. Because this salt is unrefined, it retains 60+ minerals, which are healthy and flavorful. The Cornish Sea Salt company boasts "more taste for less salt" because of this salt's ability to pack in the flavor into these delightfully crunchy, full-flavored crystals!
Chef Didi Davis said of Cornish Sea Salt: "I have been eating it right out of the bucket, it is so delicious! I love its clean, pure sweetness, and particularly its lack of harshness."
