We have a sea salt manufacturer in Canada? Why yes we do! And we're very excited to have them included in the catalogue for The Organic Box. This is local, innovative, and delicious. Let's here all about it from VISC founder, Andrew Shepard: "After a decade travelling the world as a chef, my young family decided to plant our roots on beautiful Vancouver Island. Surrounded by pristine ocean waters, I wondered why Canada did not have its own Sea Salt. A friend told me that "if it could be done, it would be done"... Well, that sounded like a challenge and a bet for a case of beer was made. We spent a night on the beach boiling down sea water over a fire. In the morning, sea salt was harvested, I had won the bet (and the beer) and the rest is history. I am very proud to offer the world a taste of truly unrefined Canadian sea salt and a selection of sea salt infusions, respectfully hand harvested from the wild coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Enjoy!"
Almost exclusively used as a garnish and finishing salt, our Canadian fleur de sel adds beautiful texture along with an attractive presentation. Super smooth in flavour you can use the Canadian fleur de sel more generously than our other salts without fear of over salting.
Crisp clean salt flavour sets off the back and sides of the pallet, with a sweet slightly caramelized balsamic finish.<br><br> Pairs beautifully with fresh tomatoes unripened cheeses, toasted nuts, and olive oil with fresh foccacia bread. The balsamic salts beautiful color makes it a great garnish for plated salads and appys.
This all purpose infused salt lends a subtle smokiness and rounds off your seasoning for all types of meats, fish and green veggies. <br><br> We also love using Smoked Paprika Sea Salt as the finishing salt for seafood paella, Middle Eastern salads like fattoush, and beetroot hummus. Try this infused sea salt as part of a rimmer for a Caesar cocktail.
