The Wonderful World of Finishing Salts
Salt production in Solnitsata, the earliest known town in Europe, supplied this precious commodity to the Balkans and wealth to the city. The intrinsic value of salt has been evident throughout history. So what are finishing salts?
Salt is necessary for life and essential for seasoning and preserving food.
The Magic of Finishing Salts
Just a pinch of salt can make all the difference in a recipe. Salt can neutralize many foods’ bitter tastes and enhance sweet and savory recipes.
This entire category of finishing salts aims to instill texture and flavor in finished recipes. Specific recipes will benefit from a particular finishing salt that complements their ingredients and flavors.
Finishing salt crystals provide a unique crunch and minute bursts of salty flavor.
Table salt crystals are uniform in shape and size, while finishing salts sport flat, rough, uneven, and flaky crystals. These features are what make these spices so effective in delivering their salty goodness.
