Big Sur, CA
Big Sur Salts takes traditional sea salt to the next level! The blends are a mix of local fruits, nuts herbs and vegetables that are directly sourced from farms around the Central Coast. The region is one of the largest agricultural areas in the US, allowing the sourcing and use of the freshest ingredients available.
The "Old Red" is a blend of Pico Bianco sea salt, cucumbers, mint, old growth redwood nettles, shaved redwood bark and lemon dust. It's majestically woodsy and floral; reminiscent of camping along the coast. Our test kitchen can't get enough! We've been dousing everything from crudo to pork belly in the mixture. Our favorite use, however? Lightly sprinkled atop vanilla ice cream.
