French Fleur de Sel Sea Salt
French sea salt is known as the very finest. Sea salt in France is still hand-harvested in the traditional way, by drying seawater in shallow pools. As the water evaporates, crystals begin to form. If wind, sun, and temperature conditions are right, bright white crystals will form on the surface. This Fleur de Sel, the flower of the salt, must be harvested quickly before it precipitates back into the water.
