Saltverk Made in Iceland Flaky Seasalt
About this product
Made in Iceland
Saltverk was born out of a passion for food, sustainability, and Icelandic pride. We wanted to make a product that expressed these passions and that was of the highest quality.
Using the natural resources that we have right at hand in Iceland - geothermal hot springs and pristine, clean seawater - we started making sea salt.
By only using geothermal energy for our production, we’re able to create a sustainable, carbon neutral product with no carbon footprint on the environment.
Tasting Notes :: Our pure sea salt is a crunchy, mineral-rich sea salt. The higher mineral content, and flaky structure of our salt give it a bold, rich and pure flavor that enhances and elevates the dishes you cook. Once you try it, you won’t want anything else.
Key Descriptors :: Pure, Pristine, Bold Best Pairings / Recipes :: Everything.
You can use this salt for cooking, for brining, for curing, for finishing and everything in between. 90g (3.17 oz)
The word remote might have been invented to describe the Westfjords of Iceland. After finishing my studies I wanted to create something that honored and built upon traditional Icelandic food methods in a sustainable way. In 2011, Reykjanes in the Westfjords attracted me exactly for those particular reasons - its remoteness, natural resources and history of salt making. The Danish king established salt production in the 18th century using geothermal energy to produce salt. The production stopped a few decades later and the tradition of saltmaking in Iceland came to an end. But the tradition was not lost forever - in 2011 Saltverk was founded and reestablished salt making in Iceland. Making sustainable, hand harvested products of high quality is the passion that has guided us along the way. Today, Saltverk salt is used in many of the best restaurants and in the homes of food enthusiasts around the world. - Björn Steinar Jónsson, Salt Maker, Founder
