What Are Botanically Infused Salt Blends?
A new trend in taste...
Our Botanically Infused Salt Blends combine the purest salts with our Culinary Essential Oils & Botanicals made to elevate your culinary & cocktail creations resulting in depth and complexity of flavor with very few ingredients.
Salts have their own Terroir, mirroring wine culture and essential oils, and it's coined as “Merroir.” Minimally processed salts naturally have unique flavors and characteristics, stemming from their slight imperfections and where they are harvested. We’ve chosen these salts based on their elements of bitterness, texture, color, and the way they meet the tongue, to complement our featured Botanicals and Culinary Essential Oils.
Nowadays, common table salt, which has been stripped of its trace minerals, has bitter notes and is often chemically-treated. This is why we use minimally processed salts from inland deposits of ancient origin and true sea salts that have a milder, well-rounded flavor and contain trace minerals in the same ratios as found in our blood serum.
In addition to being an important electrolyte needed by the body, salt was once valued for many different uses. Have you ever heard someone use the compliment “he's worth his salt”? That phrase was originally used to describe dedicated Roman soldiers whose wages were paid in salt.
Our Botanically Infused Salt Blends are made to bring balance to foods whether starting, layering, or finishing your dishes. Use a pinch here and there in your Bloody Marys, curries, sauces, marinades, cheese courses, or heirloom grains and legumes. Simply season your meats, potatoes, or parsnips, make flavored butters, and even finish brownies or chocolate chip cookies. One of our favorite treats is heirloom popcorn sprinkled with our Piment d’ Ville... Although, be warned, it can be addictive!
In addition to inspiration form our Recipe Library, we encourage you to be creative. We would love to hear how you are using our Botanically Infused Salt Blends... And remember, whether it is sweet or savory, a little sprinkle goes a long way.
