"Where That Great French Salt Comes From"
As seen in the New York Times!
Our finest fleur de sel, it offers unmatched sophistication for finishing all subtler foods, sweets, dairy, and cooked vegetables. The Fleur de Sel de l'Île de Ré is selected from the most accomplished (in our opinion) saunier ("saltmaker") of the saltmaking villages in western France. While each of the three saltmaking villages--Noirmoutier, Guérande, and Ré--along France's rugged western and northern coasts coast have their strengths, our Fleur de Sel de l'Île de Ré is possibly the most refined and subtle.
With a very faint rose tint and almost imperceptible scent of violets, Fleur de Sel de l'Île de Ré's fine crystals give a silken texture that puts this among the greatest of finishing salts anywhere. Mild, delicate, with the faintest hint of brine.
All this said, this finishing salt should not be saved for special occasions. In addition to being unsurpassed on broiled meats, fish, and vegetables, it is the best salt we have ever tried on French fries!
Like all our fleurs de sel it is harvested in the traditional, labor-intensive way, passing seawater through a network of dikes and ponds. On warm, windy days, saltmakers rake the purest, whitest layer off the top to make what many believe is the finest salt produced anywhere in the world.

Service and communication from The Meadow was perfect!
I bought this salt for my boyfriend. He loves and talks about it constantly! It tastes great too whenever he makes something for me. I will definitely be purchasing this again when he runs out!
I would not usually order what seemed to be a "simple" salt. I am so very pleased that I decided to try this one. The taste and the consistency are fabulous. It is like no other salt I've used. Definitely on my re-order list!
This is such a delight on top of my crackers and meals! A light sprinkling of the immensely flavorful yet with delicate notes. My perfect salt!
Oh, pandemic crackers...infinitely more exciting and delicious when topped with our finest Fleur de Sel. Fleur de sel del 'Île de Ré is the most refined and most subtle with just a *chef's kiss* of briny flavor. Bliss.
The product was delivered in a timely manner and the quality was outstanding!
