Beauty Mark—Fleur de Sel

By kikilu — October 03, 2012

I love good salt—the taste, the texture, even the containers. Throw away that cheap table salt and start investing in good sea salts. A little goes a long way. They're natural and harvested above ground from evaporated seawater with little to no processing leaving minerals from the water. Recommended as finishing salts, (I use Kosher for cooking) they are coarser than the table version and when used correctly, the flavor lingers. This stuff…this stuff is the crème de la crème of salt. Literally, Fleur de Sel from Le Saunier de Camargue is the top layer of the salt bed that is hand raked and harvested in France. It's pricey to use for everything but as a finishing salt, it's lovely and the one I've used for years. is a great resource to purchase all of your salts, especially in bulk. Pluck some vine-ripened tomatoes from your garden, slice them and sprinkle some Fleur de Sel. Perfection.
