Fleur de Sel by Mrs. McGarrigle's

$9.99
Renowned chefs and cooking enthusiasts the world over have always had a soft spot for fleur de sel – and who can blame them? With its versatility and unique texture, it’s perfect for baking (salted caramels, anyone?) or finishing basically any dish you can think of.

But what is fleur de sel, exactly, and what makes it so special?

Well, it’s hand-harvested sea salt by workers who scrape just the top layer of salt before it sinks right to the bottom of large salt pans. We get ours from the Atlantic salt marshes of Portugal (harvested just three months of the year!), but fleur de sel can also be harvested off the coast of France. Because of its relative scarcity and labour-intensive collection process, fleur de sel is one of the most expensive salts you can buy.

We can’t help but love it, though! It might be a splurge item – but it’s perfect for livening up fish, meat, salads, vegetables or desserts – so we always have a jar on hand!
