Back in stock at long last!
Icarus-like, Takesumi is hatched from bamboo segments that were packed with Japanese deep sea salt and incinerated. The result, not so much a salt as a carbonated topping that, upon contact with mouth, instantly dissolves into the sweetness of fizzled Poprocks.
Mark Bitterman says, "My first meal with this salt was bourbon-glazed venison on a plate dotted casually around its rim with molten-hot jalapeno pepper and little volcanoes of Takesumi Bamboo salt piled at its side. Never have color, flavor, and texture been so implausibly and perfectly married."
Takesumi Bamboo is an extremely versatile salt. Try it around any barbecued meat, grilled fish, sushi, stir-fried vegetables, raw oysters, tropical fruit, or venison.
Ingredients: Sea salt

Hi Bridget! Great to hear - we're so happy it's back as well.
Love this salt and all the others I have bought. The flavors are just awesome. I have all the salted cookbooks and have cooked different recipes and I keep looking at all the other recipes and have a difficult time deciding on which one next. Now for more salts to order as well as a new salt block. Awesome, Awesome.
This is my second bottle. Mix it with kosher salt.
I love this salt. The grains are fine and crunchy with a well balance and delicate flavor. The dark color makes it beautiful on vegetables.
