deSILVA'S says: This exquisite salt is an essential for any food lover. Although very delicate, it is an amazing flavour-enhancer, making it ideal for finishing whole fish, steamed vegetables, roasted meats and even chocolate.
The Portuguese cork box ensures the salt is kept at it's best at all times and also makes a beautiful gift.
100% natural, gourmet salt hand-harvested from the salt pans in the protected nature reserve of the Ria Formosa in the Algarve.
As the sluice gates open, sea water enters the salt pans. The heat of the sun creates flakes of salt that start to crystalise on the waters surface, which are then skimmed off by hand in the summer evenings and left to dry in the sun.This ancient process ensures the finest quality.
More than half of the world's cork comes from Portugal and it is regarded as some of the best. The Portuguese - as industrious as they are - have used cork to create a wide variety of products, from corks, to table mats, to umbrellas and - believe it or not - shoes! In this case, the cork serves to keep the salt away from humidity and at its best.
