A sprinkling of high-quality salt can make any dish simply sing. For its flavorful finishing salts, Jacobsen Salt Co. gathers water from pristine Netarts Bay, on the rugged Oregon coastline. Using custom methods perfected by company founder Ben Jacobsen, the water is slowly evaporated until it naturally forms light, delicate salt crystals, which are hand harvested, dried and mixed with Portland’s Stumptown fair trade Hairbender coffee, which has sweet and savory notes of chocolate, caramel and jasmine. The medium to large flakes have a deep chocolate hue and a bright delicate minerality. Use in meat rubs or sprinkle over shortbread cookies, chocolate desserts or even lattes. The salt is sold separately or as a set with a Jacobsen logo-stamped stoneware salt cellar, hand thrown by a small ceramics studio in Portland using local clay and food-safe, lead-free glazes.
