The Making of Fleur de Sel
The production of Fleur de Sel is very elaborate and requires craftsmanship. The salt farmers divert seawater into artificial pools. Here, the seawater evaporates due to the intense sunshine in the summer at high temperatures. What remains is a highly concentrated brine, which is led into a so-called dry pool. On days with a light wind, fine salt crystals settle on the surface of the water. These delicate salt formations are the popular Fleur de Sel. They are then carefully skimmed and dried a little before they are shipped to Europe.
Hibiscus Blossoms (Karkadeh)
Hibiscus flowers also called Karkadeh belong to the mallow family. They have a wonderfully sour aroma and are often used to prepare soft drinks. In other cultures, they are also used as a spice. In Sri Lanka, for example, one mixes hibiscus flowers in curry - this then has a nice reddish-liliane coloring and a sourish aroma. The hibiscus aroma goes well with fish and seafood and salad.
