Just a sprinkle of our finishing sea salts from The Meadows, an artisanal food purveyor in Portland, Oregon, can radically enhance and balance the flavors of foods and bring out subtle sweet and savory nuances. For this exceptional condiment from Wales, pure seawater from the Menai Straits is gently evaporated into a thick, salty brine, then released into crystallization tanks, where delicate crystals form overnight. They’re harvested gently by hand, rinsed until snowy white and smoked over Welsh oak. The resulting crystals glow amber and carry the flavors of a seaside bonfire, pairing beautifully with full-bodied fowl like pigeon or guinea fowl as well as mollusks. The smoky notes also are superb with sweets, particularly chocolate, caramel and crème brûlée.
