Artisan Salt Company

Salt, we use it all the time, anytime, sprinkled over the yolk of a hard boiled egg, a crusty Gruyere cheese bread and in a quick chili-flake, garlic, tomato sauce. During the ancient times, it was a prized ingredient to preserve and flavor fresh food. With mass production, diverse artisanal varieties are harder to find, but once you try them, it will be like tasting an heirloom tomato for the first time, opening up a spectrum of possibilities in flavor. Travel the world with your taste buds, featured here are salts from the Mediterranean, India, Hawaii, Portugal and France. Available at ArtisanSalt.com.
