Black Diamond is a Mediterranean flake salt that is thoroughly suffused with activated charcoal. The activated charcoal, a natural detoxifier that has health benefits in small doses, gives Black Diamond a deep, dark obsidian luster and a distinctly earthy taste of carbon. Black Diamond's pyramid-shaped crystals are very large and provide a nice toothsome crunch that makes for a marvelous counterpoint in texture on your food. Its raven color brings delightful contrast to a dish lighter in color and is sure to elicit an exclamation from your guests.
Try it with fresh chevre, grilled asparagus pasta, potato lakes, baked potatoes, or any other food that calls for a visual pop.

I have never been disappointed by purchases from The Meadow. I just bought from them online but I usually make a day of going by the store on Hudson. One of my big pleasures in life. Go there. Just go there.
Love the soft moist texture of this salt and the clean mineral finish. The color is great to dress up dishes like deviled eggs or risotto.
Used their recipe for deviled eggs with red pepper. Adding the diamond flake salt makes for an amazing flavor and texture.
I have many usages of this delicious salt, the most common is to mortar/pestle it, then mix with unsalted nut butters.
