Flower of the Ocean® (aka Fleur de Sel), is a natural phenomenon of the European salt flats. Only when the weather conditions are just right do these small, delicate crystals form naturally on the surface of the salt brine. Look closely at this naturally white salt and you will notice a pink tint that bespeaks its precious character. Flower of the Ocean has an elegant, complex, delicate flavor balanced with a hint of sweetness. Most people choose to save Flower of the Ocean as a “finishing” salt (sprinkled over foods just before serving), but it can be used in cooking, or ground and used in baking. Flower of the Ocean® sea salt also makes an excellent margarita salt. Our Celtic Sea Salt® Flower of the Ocean® is certified organic by Nature etProgres, the highest level of certification allowed in Europe.
