Antarctic Sea Salt


 

$6

Antarctic Sea Salt is named for the Antarctic Circumpolar current, the largest in the world. This current brushes up against South Africa, where the salt is produced.

It has a clouded quartz color, massive coarse grains, and little moister. The flavor is flat but big and mineral-rich. Use as an all-around cooking salt or use a mortar and pestle to crack it for finishing rare steaks.

  • Small Jar - 2.6oz/74g
  • Large Jar - 10.4oz/296g
  • 1lb Bag - 16oz/454g

Thoughts

Antarctic sea salt is crystalized in solar salt pans raked by prevailing South Atlantic winds that are whipped up by the fiery African sun. The source water from the salt is pumped from a pure underground aquifer that is trickle fed from ice cold antarctic waters carried up the west coast of Africa by the Benguela current. The salt is dried in the open air before being packaged. Completely unprocessed, each bold, rugged crystal harbors the unique flavor of the Antarctic waters from whence it comes. Like all solar salts, Antarctic sea salt is evaporated without the use of fossil fuels.
