FRENCH SEA SALT

Our French sea salts are unique to Brittany. There, shimmering pools lined with rows of mulons (mounds of harvested salt) scatter sunlight into a mosaic of blue, green and pink shards of light that give the medieval town mystical appeal at dawn and dusk, and the paludiers who sustain them recognition as ancestral guardians and skilled artisans. Replace your table salt with our fine grain French Grey salt and your cooking salt with our coarse grain French Grey Salt. Make an every-day dish something special and add crystallized flakes of Fleur de Sel just before serving. Here’s a few recipes to get you started:
