This artisanal sea salt was handcrafted in Iceland, using geothermal energy. It was dried over Icelandic birch wood, giving it a unique flavor. Smoky and salty, it adds an incredibly unique flavor to your food.
The Saltverk Birch Smoked Salt will take your dishes to a new and unique level. Use it for your barbecue rubs; it will enhance the smokiness and give your meats a unique flavor. It’s especially great with leg of lamb, or a hefty steak. It’s also wonderful with simpler dishes; sprinkle it over your eggs, steamed vegetables, or freshly popped popcorn.
In the 18th century, the Danish king established a salt production that made use of geothermal energy. But a few decades later, that tradition in Iceland ended indefinitely. But this tradition lived on in idea, and in 2011, Björn Steinar Jónsson founded Saltverk, reestablishing this time-old method of salt-making in Iceland. Born of a love for food and pride in his Icelandic heritage, Saltverk is found on a small peninsula in the Westfjords of Iceland, called Reykjanes, which separates two fjords and is surrounded by high mountains. They use this two-century-old method to both honor and keep the tradition, and also to create a product that is purely sustainable. Now coming in many flavors, and found in many homes, the best restaurants, and raved about by the best chefs, Saltverk is a true example of bringing an ancient tradition into the modern world.
