This sea salt underscores the importance of water source and the saltmaker’s craft. Seawater sourced from the ultra pure waters around Molokai are solar evaporated and combined with red Alaea volcanic clay to achieve an ultra mineral-rich sea salt with the clear, refreshing flavor of deep Pacific waters. The salt is used in Hawaii for both seasoning and preserving foods. Hawaiians believe that the baked Alaea clay, which is composed of over 80 minerals, provides a variety of benefits, with detoxifying and healing powers. While the salt has also been used historically for ceremonial purposes such as blessing and purifying sea-going canoes, it also works wonders on seafood, pork, and fruit salads, and can be ground to produce a glinting blend of white and red color.

Salt has a nice texture and good flavor. Crisp with a hint of minerality and smokiness.
One of my absolute favorites. Got the big size this time
I really enjoy using finishing salts, they add a lot of interest to many dishes, and I enjoy experimenting with different ones. The Meadow has a great selection and my order came quickly!
Ran out of Molokai Red Sea Salt over a weekend with a dinner party coming on Wednesday where I had planned to use the salt as part of a pork rub. No time to get to store so placed online order which arrived Tuesday morning. Thanks for your great customer service!!
Adds the perfect crunch to a salad.
