A recent letter

I ordered a mystery box to share with my partner on our recent kinda vacation... I love how it was wrapped simply with brown paper and tied with twine...

Bitterman's Flake Sea Salt

Title

Our favorite flake salt for all purpose sprinkling and finishing!

This salt is the snow of the sea, with a soft, crispy texture and a salinity so other-worldly it will transport any dish it touches. This salt loves spring and summer. Gently scatter the flakes on lightly dressed green salads, raw or freshly grilled vegetables, fish and other seafoods.

Marlborough Flaky Sea Salt has uniquely frothy, three dimensional crystal unlike any other finishing salt we have encountered. It is harvested from the clear waters of the great southern oceans. Currents sweep up the East Coast of New Zealand and into the Solar Salt field located right at the top of the South Island.

These waters are evaporated using the natural process of the sun and wind. At the end of each summer Bitterman's Flake sea salt is carefully gathered so as to maintain the balance of minerals naturally present in salt harvested from the sea. Bitterman's Flake sea salt acquires its impossibly complex and light crystal structure by being very slowly evaporated in an open pan, allowing the formation of very light sea salt flakes.

This salt loves Spring. Use on pasta primavera, garden spinach salads, chocolate cake, or fresh picked snow peas. 

    Ingredients: Sea salt

    Bitterman Flake Sea Salt

    I use this for my sweet potatoes, chicken and steamed veggies. It's delicious and adds an extra touch of flavor. I am very satisfied and will continue to purchase this product.
    Thank you.

    Sorry to say, not crispy, more like the cotton candy of salt :(

    We generally enjoy the majority of the products from Bittermans and in particular, the Flake Sea Salt but from Norway. This one from New Zealand is not chunky crystals of various sizes, but more like a powdered salt that has been allowed to dry so it appears chunky. But when it hits your mouth it melts, thus the cotton candy comparison. We like to hear and feel the crunch of the salt crystals, so we won't be purchasing this in the future, sorry to say.

    Hiya Walter,

    Thank you for the feedback! We are sorry to hear that you were not especially pleased with our flake salt. Unfortunately we did have to change our house flake salt back to our New Zealand Flake which is characterized as soft, frothy and very light. If you're in the market for a more substantial, shard-like, crunchy flake salt we would love to send you a complimentary cork size of our Halen Mon Silver Flake or Alaska Pure Flake! ~Christiana

    Outstanding

    This salt is a marvel. It has a strong mineral backbone and one of the cleanest flavors I have encountered in salt. The bright flavor and flaky nature provide a beautiful finish to many dishes. Thank you for making it your house flake salt.
