Shop Pink Himalayan Salt Blocks for cooking, grilling, serving - more than 600 million years old

Enough with salting your food... now it's time to food your salt.

Our Himalayan salt blocks are the best available anywhere, hand-picked from the purest seams of 600 million year old salt deposits deep under the rugged Punjabi landscape. Suitable for freezing to -320°F (-196°C) and heating to 900°F (482°C); no other salt block has been tested to such extremes! Our himalayan Salt Blocks are selected for both natural beauty and structural integrity. Suitable for all uses, from salt block freezing to frying to curing to grilling. Serve fruits and cheeses, cure unreal gravlax, warm a salad of wilted greens and Roquefort cheese, sear lobster or flatiron steak or duck breast with duck fat-fried potato chips, chill tuna tartar or scallop ceviche, and for dessert, try freezing some salted bitters ice cream! 

Our Guarantee

We are committed to sourcing the highest quality salt blocks available anywhere. We build close relationships with local producers to ensure each block is stunningly beautiful with unique color and uniform crystalline structure, and of the highest quality. Always.
