I was introduced to
Maldon Sea Salt while living in Sanibel Island Florida and working at a small gourmet food market.
The buyer for the company was a master at his trade, procuring some of the finest handcrafted cheeses, characterises, sea salts and a variety of other gourmet food products; not to mention a wine collection that would blow your socks off!
It was a pleasure to work in an environment filled with so many delicious gourmet offerings.
The sea salt collection was modest but exquisite. Handcrafted salts made by artisans from around the world, each with their distinct geographical flavors.
Maldon Sea Salt: The ancient craft of hand-harvesting salt crystals, using the traditional long-handled rakes, is still practised by the company today.
I was attracted to the Maldon Sea Salt for it's unique beauty! The tiny pyramid-shaped crystals, snow white, soft and flaky, really peaked my interest.
The delicate ‘salty’ flavor is harmonious with the beauty of the crystals and is unmatched by any other cooking salt I'd ever tasted.
The Maldon Crystal Salt Company is a family run business which has continued the ancient craft of panning salt since 1882, using many of the skills handed down by generations of salt makers. To view a complete history of the Maldon Crystal Salt company and it’s other fine products, visit their website Maldon Salt.
