Fleur de Sel de Guérande
For every 80 pounds of salt harvested, only 3 pounds of Fleur de Sel is produced. Chefs recommend using it as a condiment, because of its crystalline, semi-moist texture, and fine, pure flavor.
What you get
Fleur de Sel de Guérande (“flower of the sea”) is harvested in minute quantities from the surface of the Atlantic Ocean off French Brittany, only on calm, sunny days in July and August. The result: what French chefs deem “the caviar of salt.” In flip-top, pourable/spoonable jar; 7.5 ounces, about 1 cup.
