The Saltverk Licorice Salt is a unique salt that combines crunchy sea salt flakes from Iceland with raw licorice from Persian licorice roots. It has a sweet and savory flavor that is perfect for experimenting. This is the salt for people who love to try new things and new flavors in their dishes.
While the Saltverk Licorice Salt is great on seafood or eggs (it elevates something as simple as a boiled egg to new heights), it’s even more perfect for desserts and snacks. Use it over your porridge in the morning, in cakes, sprinkled over cookies or chocolates, and even over 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.
