The production of the French Sea Salt Flowers
The salt flower from Camargue, like the Guerande, is produced in salt gardens according to traditional craftsmanship. There is a difference in production. Here in the Camargue, you don't benefit from the tides; you use a sophisticated irrigation system to channel the seawater into the salt pans. From March, the salt water of the Mediterranean is pumped into the salt basin every year. This Mediterranean water has a salt content of 3.8%.
Due to the sun and the steady wind, the water in the salt basin evaporates, and the brine remains. In summer, when the sun shines on the pools at 40 ° C, the first beautiful salt crystals form. These fine salt crystals that form on the surface of the water are called the Fleur de Sel, also called the salt flower. A real wonder of nature. Star chefs and amateur chefs love this salt because it has an excellent, crispy consistency. It is better than ordinary salt, and its taste is intense.
Please put your gourmet salt in a tightly closable container and store it cool and dry.
