Our salt is solar evaporated and hand harvested in unheated hoop-houses making the process completely driven by the sun. Unlike many seasalt makers, we allow our seawater to completely evaporate, bringing in the whole mineral wealth of the sea to broaden the flavor. Sea Salt you buy in the store is generally 99% pureNaCl (sodiumchloride). However, naturally the ocean is only about 80-85%NaCl, and this difference is where our salt packs in a whole lot more flavor!
