Salts from Hawaii are traditional sea salts. They are often infused with baked red alaea clay, which is composed of over 80 minerals, during the harvesting process. These red salts were used historically for ceremonial purposes such as blessing and purifying sea-going canoes, implements, and important household items. Others salts are combined with activated charcoal, bamboo leaf extract, or left in a natural state.
Impact: Can be hard and crunchy if coarse, with a bright oceanic saltiness. Red salts are slightly ferrus and minerally.
Uses: Varies from salt to salt. Popcorn to mango, asparagus to pork shoulder, Hawaiian salts are a versatile bunch.
