MALDON Smoked Sea Salt, 4.4oz. (125g)

$6.98

Product Highlights

It is an interesting exercise to taste common table salt alongside Maldon Sea Salt Flakes… The table salt sits rather uncomfortably on the tongue and has an underlying bitterness. This English sea salt is milder, has the flavor of sea spray, and is free from the chemical tang of table salt.  Maldon Sea Salt is made of pure flaky crystals which slowly dissolve leaving the palate completely refreshed.

 

Maldon Smoked Sea Salt contains no additives and is smoked using English oak and a special blend of hardwoods from sustainable sources. Using traditional smoking methods to gently cold smoke the salt crystals ensures a truly exciting taste. These salts are certified by the Organic Food Federation as an Approved Product. It continues to be hand harvested, using the same traditional methods handed down by generations of local salt makers, ensuring a truly natural product.

Maldon’s Smoked Sea Salt has a pronounced and distinctive ‘salty’ taste combined with a deliciously subtle smoky flavor which adds sophistication to your favorite dishes. Try it with shellfish, meats, sauces, salsas, soups, marinades, and more.

Salt has always played an important role in the everyday life of humans, both for flavoring and preserving food. The offering of salt became a symbol of friendship and trust. To describe someone as ‘salt of the earth’ or ‘worth their salt’ shows something of the respect with which this magical white substance is held. The word ‘salary’ literally comes from the Latin word ‘salarium’ when Roman soldiers received part of their pay in the form of salt.

The English coastal town of Maldon, Essex, has been the centre of salt producing since the middle ages. Legend has it that the secret of salt-making from sea water was discovered here over 2,000 years ago when the Romans ruled Britain. Unlike most salts that contain additives to stop them from caking in damp weather, Maldon Salt is a completely natural product, retaining valuable sea water trace-elements.

The attraction of Maldon for salt-making remains the same today as it did hundreds of years ago. The combination of low rainfall, strong winds, bright sunshine and low-lying marshland produces good salty water. Early salt-making was carried out by boiling sea water, caught in shallow pools set in the marshland, over wood fires. These fires in turn acted as beacons for the local fishing fleets making their way up the coast.

Today the manufacture of Maldon Sea Salt still relies on the favorable conditions which have enabled the salt industry to develop and flourish here for many centuries. The Maldon Crystal Salt Company’s success is due to the production of a unique high quality sea salt, using traditional methods.

The pyramid-shaped salt crystals, characteristic of Maldon Salt, are fragile enough to crumble easily between the fingers and have a totally different taste from the regular grains of table salt.
