This is the traditional salt used in Hawaii to season dishes. It is all-natural and rich in the trace minerals found in seawater. It was traditionally used to cleanse, purify and bless tools, canoes, homes, and temples for centuries in many of the traditional Hawaiian ceremonies.
In the 19th century, Hawaiians began producing large amounts of alaea salt using the salt-making techniques they learned from the Europeans and became a leading supplier to fishermen in the Pacific Northwest for curing salmon.
Alaea salt gets its unusual color from the volcanic baked alaea red clay that is found in Hawaii. Valuable minerals enrich the salt and make it even healthier. It is milder than most table salts and it combines with soups and sauces well. Alaea is wonderful for grilling meats – red clay seals in moisture and adds flavor.
We also recommend you to try mixing the coarse salt with herbs and use it as a spice rub.

SMOKED SALT coarse – Let your imagination roam
A smoked sea salt that conjures up images of Vikings and invites the cook to experiment! The sea salt is smoked gradually over an open fire comprised of mainly beech wood. The salt has a strong bonfire-like aroma and a natural smoky taste. A favorite amongst vegetarians as this salt is excellent on vegetables (and as a replacement for bacon crumbles). It is delicious when sprinkled generously over meat about to be thrown on the BBQ.
We recommend experimenting with this very special salt, as the smoky flavor can suit many surprising dishes! We have even tried it on cocoa and other desserts - something every chef has to try out!
