The Production of French Salt Flowers
The production of Fleur de Sel is one of the oldest handicrafts. It is also a precise interplay between nature and people. At high tide, they direct the seawater in artificial water basins or lakes. During the day, part of the water in these pools evaporates due to the high levels of solar radiation and the wind carries away the moisture. Behind remains a highly concentrated brine that they pass on to the so-called drying basin. The remaining water evaporates in the drying basin, and sea salt remains.
Fleur de Sel does not form on all days, but only on days, with excessive heat, and very importantly the right amount of wind. Fleur de Sel forms on the top layer, about 1 cm thick. It does not require too much wind but also not too little. Fleur de Sel is a precious mood of nature.
