Gurande (Fine) - Sea Salt - Brittany, France.... An unrefined natural salt, enriched with elements, especially magnesium, with a taste reminiscent of the sea and winds of Celtic Brittany. Gurande is harvested by hand and celebrated in kitchens throughout the world. Gurande is excellent as a finishing and well as a table salt. For hundreds of years, the inhabitants of the coastal town Gurande, have harvested salt by hand, using traditional Celtic methods. Today a cooperative of salt farmers continues to produce quality sea salt, which many argue is the champagne of sea salts. A completely natural salt, it is light grey in color, rich in minerals, enhances flavors spectacularly, and is a favorite in kitchens throughout the world. The grey color comes from the rain lightly disturbing the clay at the bottom of the salt ponds. Pure and unprocessed, the salt is dried slowly and then ground into a fine powder or left coarse. This is a proud table salt and a favorite with Celts for thousands of years. Gurande enhances all recipes, and it is particularly good with seafood, steaks, or anything else you can find in a French kitchen, (although we havent yet tried it with frogs legs or snails).
