TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Harvested from a single salt mine in northern Iran, Terre Exotique Blue Salt is a rare and exquisite salt with dazzling veins of sapphire blue. A salt fossil that formed from the movement of tectonic plates millions of years ago, its rare sapphire color is a result of sylvinite, a potassium mineral that was formed into the salt’s crystal lattice due to the intense pressure.

While known for its beauty, this salt is also a culinary gem. On the palate, Terre Exotique Persian Blue Salt fronts a bold, intense saltiness that crests into a tingling, slightly acidic aftertaste similar to that of lemons. A very dry salt, this is perfect used as a finishing salt or as freshly ground with a salt mill.


PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS

Visually grand and stunning, Terre Exotique Persian Blue Salt is perfect for creating beautiful food presentations and visually stunning preparations. While possible to use as a seasoning, this dry salt is great used as a finishing garnish for seafood, truffle dishes and carpaccio.

If entertaining guests, elevate your cocktails by coating the rim of your glasses with this stunning salt. Serve a classic margarita or try a new cocktail recipe such as Salty Lime. Combine an agave spirit, lime liqueur, fresh grapefruit and lime juice in a shaker. Pour into your salt-rimmed glass and garnish with a grapefruit twist.


A SALT FOSSIL OF THE PRECAMBRIAN ERA

Created even before the first living lifeforms and creatures started inhabiting the earth, these salt fossils were formed millions of years ago as the Precambrian seas and lakes started evaporating, Persian Blue Salt can only be harvested in one salt mine located in the mountain ranges of Senman, Iran.

Known for the beautiful sapphire veins coursing through the crystals, this hue produced by sylvinite, a potassium mineral formed into the salt’s crystalline structure due to the intense pressure borne by the salt deposit due to tectonic plate movements. The color is a result of the way these diamond-shaped crystals refract light, resulting in a shimmering blue color becoming visible.


Store in a cool, dry, dark cupboard, away from the heat and light. Choose a spot in the kitchen that’s away from the oven.
