Sicilian Sea Salt - Fior di Sale 200g

These fine salt crystals are known in Italian as Fior di Sale or Primo Fiore which literally means the first flowering of salt. It is the delicate crust of fine crystals that forms a superficial layer over the salt pans of Trapani on the north-west coast of Sicily. The salinari (salt gatherers) use small spades to break the crust and gather the salt crystals by hand.

Description

The coastline around Trapani in western Sicily presents ideal conditions for salt production with a shallow swampy landscape, internal winds and warm Mediterranean climate. The volcanic rock surrounding the area gives the salt a distinctive sweetness.  

Borrometi selects the best sea salt derived from naturally occurring basins around the coastline, with harvesting commencing in March and continuing throughout the summer.
