PERSIAN BLUE SALT is the rarest and most exclusive salt and is extracted from a salt mine in northern Iran. The intriguing blue color occurs during the forming of the salt’s crystalline structure, as intense pressure is exerted on the salt deposits. The individual crystals fracture the light in an unusual way creating an optical illusion that makes the salt appear more or less shimmering blue.
Initially quite present and then rather mild with a silken sweetness. Highly popular with children for some reason!
Ideal for seafood, salads, french cuisine & truffles
