I have purchased scorpion salt in the past and the bottle I received this time had a different color and texture to the salt as if it had moisture in it. I purchased two large bottles and they were both the same. My last bottle I purchased did not look like these, although the taste is the same
I ordered three jars of salt (Scorpion salt, Fleur de Hell, and Sal de Gusano), on 08/19/2023. I received the shipment via USPS on 08/28/2023. When I opened the shipment I noticed that two of the salts looked wet.(Scorpion and Fleur de Hell), I had to remove the salts from the jars and spread them on a sheet pan, put them in a 170 degree oven for 10 minutes to dry them out. The cost of these salts should warrant The Meadow to use desiccants or other methods to protect their products from excessive moisture. I can recommend Bitterman’s salts, BUT they have got to do a better job packing and shipping.
5 stars for salt, 1 star for packing and shipping.
Hi Gregory, thanks so much for your feedback on our salts. Both our Fleur de Hell and Scorpion salt are made with a base salt of fleur de sel, which is inherently a more 'wet' salt as the crystals retain a lot of residual moisture content when harvested. For drier spicy salts, we'd recommend our Chili Lime or Sriracha salts, as the base salt is a fine-grained, dry Italian salt with very little residual moisture. Salts with dessicants are a widely traded commodity, mass-manufactured and eye-poppingly cheap. (We use organic brown rice powder as a dessicant only in one salt, our Roasted Garlic salt, as we find it absolutely necessary.) For all others, we believe in letting the beauty of the natural salt crystal as made by the sun, wind and sea, shine.
We'd love to learn more about any problems you had with packaging or shipping. If you'd like us to send you replacements or substitutions, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take care of you! Best wishes, The Meadow
don't have it yet
I was gifted scorpion salt a number of years ago and was quickly hooked. The heat is intense (so start with a few grains!) but the flavor is WOW! I use it on a wide variety of foods for that extra kick and most taste bland now without it; I carry some with me to perk up foods when I'm eating out! If you like spicy you won't be disappointed!!
I consistently use this to give low-spice dishes a lot more kick, tastes great too!
