Fleur de Sel, meaning literally, "flower of salt" is a rare sea salt harvested in parts of France, especially the Brittany region. It is delicate and flaky, perfect for adding to a dish just before serving.
The process for harvesting this salt is more laborious, but leads to its unique flaky texture. It involves collecting the thin layer of salt that rises to the surface of shallow pools of seawater.
A few crystals of fleur de sel sprinkled over a dish add a burst of flavor, visual appeal, and texture. A little bit truly goes a long way.
Comes in 5.5 ounce canvas bags.
Harvested in France.
