Product Description

Size: Small Taster Tins

What is Finishing Salt? The best way to discover finishing salts and begin using them is to try them with your own cooking. Look at them up close, admiring the range of shapes and colors, noting how they refract, reflect, or obscure light. Touch them, feeling the crests and edges, letting your fingers snap flakes or crunch chunks, plunging a spoon through a glistening mound of it. Then of course you taste them, and with every dish comes a new discovery as infinite variations of mineral contents and moisture contents and crystal structures and crystal sizes combine in your mouth and the flavors, textures, and aromatics of your food.

Our starter sets are the best way to explore finishing salts, whether you are a veteran chef, or have never even heard of finishing salt before, or both!

Our aim is on to provide you with salts that are practical and salts that are playful, and some salts that are just plain startling.

Our basic starter sets each include six salts.
* Bitterman's Sel Gris
This Sel Gris is rich in flavor and mineralst
* Bitterman's Fleur de Sel
An effective replacement for all industrial kosher, table, and sea salts.
* Maldon Flake Sea Salt
A delicate flakey salt from the UK. Snow-flake texture for a unique experience
* Black Diamond
A dark black pyramid-flake shaped salt, adding color and geometry to your cooking
* Molokai Red
A bright red dry salt from the Hawaiian island of Molokai
* Alaska Alder Smoked Salt
A salt dried by the sun and hand-harvested, then lovingly smoked slow and low over Kauai's native guava wood.

Each set comes with a brochure explaining the world of finishing salts, as well as suggested uses.

The salt selection is lovely but the jars are fragile. When opening the black salts the jar crushed in my hand. Needless to say I had to throw out the whole jar. Contacted the vendor for replacement and have never heard back so customer service is lacking also.

Just recieved the 2 oz version of this sampler kit for christmas. It was missing the promised "Includes a brochure with detailed explanations of each salt and suggested uses." Bummer! We are beginners and this brochure would have been nice to have.

cheap packaging and presentation, plus one tine arrived opened with salt spilled all over. It was fun to try these salts, but this is way overpriced and not quality enough packaging to give as a gift. Booklet incl was just a piece of photocopied paper folded, looked like they just used a cheap office printer. They are all about pure profit with less requard for their customers experience

I've been curious about finishing salts but wasn't sure which salt would be the best to use. This starter set is allowing us to really explore the differences in flavor, color, and grain size. You just need a tiny sprinkle on top of your food -- a little goes a long way (but that's the point). My only complaint is that these tins are very difficult to open, and sometimes cause a bit of a spill when they give that final pop. It would have been nice to have jars instead.

I love all the salts. The Meadow Fleur de Sel and Maldon are my favorite two by far. One of the jars showed up broken so I contacted The Meadow to inquire about buying a new jar. I told them that the salt was still fine because the jar didn't get smashed, but was cracked so all I wanted was the jar. They said they would send me a replacement jar free of charge. When it showed up it wasn't just the jar, it had the salt in it as well. I now have enough Kauai Guava Smoked Salt to last me for awhile! Also, when they shipped me the new jar they included a piece of dark chocolate. Apparently Meadow also sells dark chocolate. The chocolate was simple amazing!

If you are looking for variety in your salt, then you will no doubt want this product. You not only get one distinct sea salt, but you in fact get six. Each salt has something to add any meal as you each their own taste to provide. You may never need another salt as this give all the seasoning you can ask for(well, it couldn't hurt to get the Sayulita Sea Salt - Organic Coarse - 16 oz - by RealGoodSalt).

Sorry, couldnt resist the pun. These salts are a wonderful medley. This was purchased for a friend who is a culinary fiend. The packaging is attractive for a gift. He is quite happy with this product, and pleased with the idea. Therefore, I am happy and pleased. It works out great for a foodie, since they have so many little doo dads already.

These salts are unprocessed and unadulterated in any way. There is a distinct difference among all the saltsin the collection in that they come with various mineral undertones. Great to sprinkle on a dish just before serving; all have noticed the enhanced flavors of roasted meats, vegetables and salads.
