Hand harvested from the mangrove sanctuaries of El Salvador, Mayan Sun Sea Salt is a fluffy, moist salt that is similar to traditional Fleur de Sel. The salty, clean flavor and soft texture is the result of a natural filtering process into man-made salt ponds. The delicate crystalline grains that form at the top of the water are carefully skimmed off, preserving the trace minerals of the tropical seawater. Mayan Sun works best as a finishing salt but can add flavor to both sweet and savory foods, such as seafood and grilled meat, vegetables and salads, cinnamon-spiked desserts—even caramels and chocolates for homemade holiday gifts. Use a pinch here and there but buy in bulk to ensure that every snack and confection is enhanced with the taste of the tropics.
