Fleur de Sel is known as the "caviar of salts" and is accepted by many chefs to be the best of all sea salts. The crystals form on the very top layer of the salt ponds and are harvested by barely skimming the surface. True "Fleur de Sel" can only originate from Guérande just as authentic champagne can only come from the Champagne region of France. It has a delicate flavor, a moist texture, and a rich, sweet flavor that melts as it touches the tongue. Not only is this among the best tasting salts, it also has the highest mineral content and is naturally low in sodium, making it delicious and healthy. Fleur de Sel is a natural compliment to steamed veggies, salads, and roasted or baked meats.
