Our brilliant Pyramid Salt is truly a work of art in and of itself. A true Mediterranean delight, it hails from Cyprus Greece. The unique pyramid shape of the Pyramid Salt is created through the process of solar evaporation of sea water where the water is channeled into a chain of shallow ponds or lagoons and then into large pans where the water is gradually heated, forming the pyramid shapes of the salt. The process continues until the salt reaches 3% humidity, and can take up to two years to complete.
Pyramid Salt is known for its dazzling and distinctive pyramid shape, light texture and mild taste. This gourmet flake salt is ideal for use in cooking, baking, and as a garnishing salt for fish and vegetable dishes. The delicate crystals can be crushed in the fingers to make a finer grained salt, or the whole crystals can be used for a toothsome crunch. Use it to top a slice of rare seared beef or add some texture to a caramelized sea scallop. It also works wonderfully on pastries – like a savory spanakopita or a rich dark chocolate mousse.
However you choose to salt your food, be sure to do it with cognizance. The salt you add can make a huge difference in the final outcome of the dish. Pyramid salt not only adds outstanding beauty and flavor to a presentation, but also exquisite texture.
