A toolbox of finishing and cooking salts for every kitchen, every day!
Salt is the most powerful ingredient in the kitchen. Every natural salt has its own personality - minerals, moisture content, color, and crystals as diverse as snowflakes. Take advantage of these characteristics and suddenly a whole new vista of culinary opportunities presents itself. Using the right salt the right way is the easiest and most cost-effective way to celebrate every meal.
The Starter Set includes 3 salts for everyday cooking and seasoning and 3 salts for sparkle and pizzazz.
Bitterman's Fleur de Sel- Delicate, irregular crystals for eggs, meats, veggies, pastas, soups. The ultimate multi-purpose sea salt!
Bitterman's Sel Gris- Bold, moist mineral rich salt with balanced taste for steaks, roasts, beans, brines, pasta water. The ultimate salt for all-purpose cooking, and a great replacement for commercial kosher salts.
Bitterman's Flake - Uniquely frothy, three dimensional crystal unlike any other finishing salt salt we have encountered.
Black Diamond - Massive black flakes add visual and textural pizzazz on fruit, pasta, potato and green salads. Also ideal as a finishing touch on creamy soups.
Molokai Red- Coarse red grains from Hawaii for sprinkling on top of fresh fish, fruit, avocados!
Alaska Alder Smoked - Delicate, pyramidal crystals cold smoked over alder wood. Fresh, almost sweet flavor with a touch of smoke to boot.

I already knew the salt tins would be perfect for my very small soiree, as it meant that each of my guests had their own tin of Meadow Salt for a plate with Chef Steps sous vide chicken liver pate, a small squeeze bottle of honey, and a packet of butter crackers. YUMMY. One suggestion - I had a bit of trouble finding the tins online because the picture doesn't match the product. That said, I very quickly got a response to my inquiry, received the tins very quickly, and even got a follow up email to make sure I got them (in time for my party)! Fantastic service, incredible products - as always. Now I realize I should have snapped a pic!
Look at the photo sent with your request for a review. What you see is SMALL JARS. That's what I thought I ordered. What you sent was six TINS. I was very disappointed and don't trust you because of it. The salts are wonderful, but I don't like being disappointed/surprised.
Bought the Bitterman starter salt set. Received in timely manner, and well packaged. The variety of salts, location sources, uses suggestions, and unique flavor makes a great finishing salt.
Mark at Meadows gave me excellent customer service when I messed up on a order. Great experience, Great company, Great customer service, give theses Pros a try.
This was my first purchase from Bitterman/The Meadow and it was an educational experience. What actually led me to Bitterman was my first purchase of Fleur de Sel from Sur La Table, who carry Le Saunier de Camargue and Bitterman's. I had initially purchased the Camargue, and now that I am nearing the end of that, I had decided I wanted to try Bitterman's, so I checked out the website, saw WAY too many options, then saw these nifty little sets which I settled on. I did not noticed until AFTER I made the purchase that there were actually size options, however. But...it's just as well, given it was my first go.
Going back to the order itself, I have to give a big thumbs up for the "email tracking", which I have NEVER gotten for anything!! A very novel idea, not to mention customer-oriented.
In summary, I will be a repeat customer; there a few more salts I want to try at some point.
Thank you for an enjoyable experience!
