Maldon Sea Salt Flakes..

Hi,

My dd works at WF and this is one of the favorites of the "Team"..So, she gave
me some for Christmas..Very yummy..It is a "finishing salt" and the flakes
just melt onto the food.

You can also get it at Amazon..

Anyone ever hear of it?

I hadn't ever heard of it. Thanks for posting this.
I have been addicted to black truffle salt lately, but I like trying new ones.
I always use the pink Himalayan salt too.

I am going to go add those to my wish list.

Love Maldon

DH's son-in-law is British and also a great cook. He turned us on to Maldon quite some years ago. Maldon is a lovely salt, great flavor, and very attractive when used as just a sprinkle before serving a dish. If you're watching sodium intake, a finishing salt gives you a more "salt experience" so you can use less.

Too bad it's rather pricey!

I've purchased at my local food cooperative.
A bit pricey but not not in terms of portions.
It goes a long way, I find. Less is more, compared to standard US table salt.

I absolutely adore Maldon! I keep a small dish of it next to the stove and finish off dishes with it. I think the flavour is yummy--more minerally and less salty if you know what I mean. It is a french salt--

I'm going to have to look for this! I love sea salt flakes and sprinkle them over caramel ice cream, caramel sauce, and in my coffee when I make homemade salted caramel mochas. mmmm

As you can see, I adore salted caramel, but it only works with the right kind of salt.

i used to go to the actual place to pick up my salt tho they now have moved the factory part to a new building, the salt is still 'harvested' from the same place

we pay approx £1.80 for 250g, not sure what you have to pay there

I am so glad I found this..that dd pointed me out to it..It does give food a marvelous taste with not be overly salty..I just keep mine in a little custard cup.

She said some of their WF customers carry the little portable salt containers around to salt at restaurants..LOL

You'll really like this EnglishLit. Makes for a wonderful sprinkle over items type of salt, a crunch that stays there.

On amazon, its around $8.00 for 8 oz with free prime shipping. I don't know what that would be compared to your price there. I don't know how to do the conversion.

Ouch!! 250g is almost 9oz and £1.80 is approx $2.20!! So we are getting more for just over quarter of the price. Perhaps I had better get shipping lol
