This specialty salt is harvested in Guerande, Brittany, using traditional Celtic methods in accordance with the strict ecological rules of France's Nature & Progres certification program. Fleur de Sel de Guerande is prized above all other salts for its delicate, sweet flavor, moist texture, and fluffy, white crystals resembling newly fallen snow. It is called the "Flower of the Salt" because it "blooms" on the surface of the salt ponds when the sun and the wind are just right. Use it as a finishing salt, sprinkling it sparingly to finish seafood (pan-roasted salmon, seared scallops), rare lamb, pork tenderloin, seared foie gras, or simple summer tomato salads. It makes an especially elegant table salt when served in individual salt dishes at each place setting.
