Feature Product - Black Sea Salt
Black Sea Salt, also known as Kala Namak or Himalayan black salt, is a type of rock salt that is commonly used in Indian cuisine. Black Sea Salt is not actually from the Black Sea, but rather from the Himalayan mountains. It is made by heating a mixture of salt and activated charcoal in a furnace for several hours.
Black Sea Salt is often used in vegan and vegetarian dishes and Indian dishes such as chaat, chutneys, and raita. Our favourite way to enjoy Black Sea Salt is to use it as a finishing salt on beef, pork or game. This coarse salt's unique flavour, appearance and crunch add depth and complexity to dishes.
Consider using it in sweet dishes where you sprinkle sea salt, in salted caramel, or on top of dark chocolate.
In addition to its culinary uses, Black Sea Salt is believed to have some health benefits. It is said to aid in digestion, boost metabolism, and help with respiratory problems. However, more research is needed to confirm these claims.
Overall, black sea salt is a unique and flavorful ingredient that can add depth and complexity to various dishes.
