This is a custom-smoked sea salt using Maine cherrywood and unique smoking techniques. Pure sea salt is slowly smoked above a Maine cherrywood fire-a centuries old process. Our salt is 100% natural, with no artificial flavors or additives.
You will not find this unique smoked sea salt anywhere else as this is made exclusively for SALT TRADERS.
We asked local sea salt farmers for a smoked sea salt that was fine-textured with a mild crunch and deeply flavored. Our standards for this pure sea salt were rigorous, our palates particular. With great skill and patience (and many conversations, tastings, and fine-tuning with us), they created a beautiful new product - our very own Maine Cherry Wood Smoked Sea Salt.
Our smoked sea salt has a clean richness, without a trace of bitterness or harshness. We love this smoked sea salt with all its characteristics and nuances. Its rich caramel color impresses you first. Then you are drawn in by the Maine Cherry Wood Smoked Sea Salt's complex scent of smoke with touches of tobacco, cigar boxes, a cozy fireplace in winter. We are amazed by its touch of stickiness like soft brown sugar on coffeecake.
Suggested Uses: Spend some time in the kitchen with this must-have smoked sea salt and experiment with it as a finishing salt on meats, poultry, seafood, eggs, rice, potatoes, vegetables, and fruit. Use in soups, stews, and braises. Try Maine Cherry Wood Smoked Sea Salt as well on ice cream and chocolate or caramel sauces. And don't forget to rim you next glass of ale or dark rum cocktail.

I use the Smoked Cherry Wood Salt to season peas, beans, greens, etc., instead of bacon. Put it in a pot of boiling water, with bay leaves, and sweet paprika. Next,add peas, beans or other vegetables.
( To spice it up even more, add chopped sweet onion, and a splash of hot sauce.)Your heart will thank you for not using oil, or bacon fat. It takes less sea salt to season the food than regular salt. Good for the body! It's Yummy too!

My Jewish, Muslim, vegetarian, and vegan friends who avoid pork, and those who converted after having tasted bacon, really love this salt. Hearty and aromatic, it's awesome on eggs! I'll also use it on pork roast, roast chicken, and grillin' meats.

I've been a fan of the Danish smoked salt for at least 5-6 years and didn't think anything could hold a candle to it. I was wrong. This Cherry Wood salt is fabulous! I won't use it in place of the Danish, because each has a unique flavor, but they're definitely tied for first place in my kitchen.
Favorite uses: Bloody Mary's, brown or wild rice, potatoes of any type fixed any way, homemade apple pie, fresh strawberries or blueberries (really!), clam chowder (white), fresh green beans.

I thought it would be tough to find a product to compete with the Viking Smoked Sea Salt, but this Cherry Wood Smoked Sea Salt is great! I love it! The flavor, intensity & aftertaste are wonderful, natural and clean! i tried it on ice cream as suggested and it was out of this world!
