Trapped underground for thousands of years beneath an ancient ocean, what sounds like a terrifying experience for us is just the first part of the journey for this Peruvian Pink Sea Salt. Feeding a spring high up in the Andes Mountains, the water eventually seeps into ponds where it has been harvested for millennia.
Hand-harvested by local families and transported into town on the backs of burros, Salt Traders prides itself on offering salts that epitomize traditional sourcing methods. With a distinctly pale, pinkish-hue, this salt is rich with minerals, giving it a complex taste that is the perfect complement to salads and vegetables.
Even though it’s hard to fathom the depths and distances it will travel to make it to your kitchen, once you have your first taste, you won’t know how you ever lived without it.
