This salt comes from the town of Maldon in Essex, England, where the family-run Maldon Crystal Salt Company has been making salt for over 100 years. The salt is hand-harvested from the Blackwater river using a special process that creates a very distinctive, pure white, pyramid-shaped salt crystal. It is a completely natural salt without any additives, and has a pronounced salty taste without any of the bitterness of ordinary table salt. Favoured by famous chefs and home cooks around the world, devotees often note how pleasing it is to crunch Maldon salt between your fingers before sprinkling it into a dish – no salt mill required! Not a pouring salt, Maldon deserves its own little pot in your kitchen so you can crunch and crumble it yourself.
