Maldon Sea Salt

Time-honored, salt-making traditions are used to extract fine pyramid-shaped crystals of pure, all-natural Maldon sea salt on the banks of the River Blackwater in Essex, England. Known for its soft texture and delicate, clean taste without chemical overtones, Maldon sea salt is the ideal complement to meat in flavor and in forming the desirable crust on seared cuts. In a taste test conducted by Cook's Illustrated, Maldon sea salt was "the clear winner" when compared to various brands of table salt, Kosher salt, fleur de sel, and other sea salts. "Tasters loved the crunch of the large sea-salt flakes or crystals when sprinkled over slices of roast tenderloin."
