Terre Exotique Blue Salt from Persia 280g

A Sapphire Blue Salt Fossil

Unlike sea salt which is extract¬≠ed from salt marsh¬≠es, these salt crys¬≠tals are mined in a sin¬≠gle salt deposit in the moun¬≠tains of Sen¬≠man, Iran or what used to be Per¬≠sia. A rare and pre¬≠cious salt prized for its beau¬≠ty and culi¬≠nary taste.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Har¬≠vest¬≠ed from a sin¬≠gle salt mine in north¬≠ern Iran, Terre Exo¬≠tique Blue Salt is a rare and exquis¬≠ite salt with daz¬≠zling veins of sap¬≠phire blue. A salt fos¬≠sil that formed from the move¬≠ment of tec¬≠ton¬≠ic plates mil¬≠lions of years ago, its rare sap¬≠phire col¬≠or is a result of sylvi¬≠nite, a potas¬≠si¬≠um min¬≠er¬≠al that was formed into the salt‚Äôs crys¬≠tal lat¬≠tice due to the intense pressure.

While known for its beau¬≠ty, this salt is also a culi¬≠nary gem. On the palate, Terre Exo¬≠tique Per¬≠sian Blue Salt fronts a bold, intense salti¬≠ness that crests into a tin¬≠gling, slight¬≠ly acidic after¬≠taste sim¬≠i¬≠lar to that of lemons. A very dry salt, this is per¬≠fect used as a fin¬≠ish¬≠ing salt or as fresh¬≠ly ground with a salt mill.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Visu¬≠al¬≠ly grand and stun¬≠ning, Terre Exo¬≠tique Per¬≠sian Blue Salt is per¬≠fect for cre¬≠at¬≠ing beau¬≠ti¬≠ful food pre¬≠sen¬≠ta¬≠tions and visu¬≠al¬≠ly stun¬≠ning prepa¬≠ra¬≠tions. While pos¬≠si¬≠ble to use as a sea¬≠son¬≠ing, this dry salt is great used as a fin¬≠ish¬≠ing gar¬≠nish for seafood, truf¬≠fle dish¬≠es and carpaccio.

If enter¬≠tain¬≠ing guests, ele¬≠vate your cock¬≠tails by coat¬≠ing the rim of your glass¬≠es with this stun¬≠ning salt. Serve a clas¬≠sic mar¬≠gari¬≠ta or try a new cock¬≠tail recipe such as Salty Lime. Com¬≠bine an agave spir¬≠it, lime liqueur, fresh grape¬≠fruit and lime juice in a shak¬≠er. Pour into your salt-rimmed glass and gar¬≠nish with a grape¬≠fruit twist.

A SALT FOS¬≠SIL OF THE PRE¬≠CAM¬≠BRI¬≠AN ERA

Cre¬≠at¬≠ed even before the first liv¬≠ing life¬≠forms and crea¬≠tures start¬≠ed inhab¬≠it¬≠ing the earth, these salt fos¬≠sils were formed mil¬≠lions of years ago as the Pre¬≠cam¬≠bri¬≠an seas and lakes start¬≠ed evap¬≠o¬≠rat¬≠ing, Per¬≠sian Blue Salt can only be har¬≠vest¬≠ed in one salt mine locat¬≠ed in the moun¬≠tain ranges of Sen¬≠man, Iran. 

Known for the beau¬≠ti¬≠ful sap¬≠phire veins cours¬≠ing through the crys¬≠tals, this hue pro¬≠duced by sylvi¬≠nite, a potas¬≠si¬≠um min¬≠er¬≠al formed into the salt‚Äôs crys¬≠talline struc¬≠ture due to the intense pres¬≠sure borne by the salt deposit due to tec¬≠ton¬≠ic plate move¬≠ments. The col¬≠or is a result of the way these dia¬≠mond-shaped crys¬≠tals refract light, result¬≠ing in a shim¬≠mer¬≠ing blue col¬≠or becom¬≠ing visible.
