Today I came across a collection of sea salts, still factory sealed, for $3.00 so I decided to buy them.
I noticed something interesting* on the packaging so I looked up the product:
Each of the sea salts in this special sampler is prized for its distinctive flavor and characteristic color. Use any of them as a finishing salt with meat, poultry, seafood, vegetable and fruit dishes.
Set includes four of the finest salts in the world, each with a distinctive natural flavor.
Haleakala red sea salt: red salt from Hawaii with a nutty flavor and a briny sweetness that complement fish and pork.
Kilauea black sea salt: Hawaiian black salt with a subtly smoky, sweet-salty flavor well suited to fish dishes as well as tropical fruits. It gets its color from activated charcoal, a prized digestive.
Australian pink salt: pink-colored salt flakes from Australia's Murray River have a rich yet delicate flavor, the perfect finish for seafood, meats, vegetables and salads.
Cyprus flake sea salt: mild in flavor and pyramid-shaped, the white flakes are hand harvested from the Mediterranean and work well with hors d'oeuvres, salads and seafood.
Set of four includes one of each; 8.5 oz. total.
A Williams-Sonoma exclusive. $39.50
2 salts list "salt" as their ingredient
The red sea salt ingredients: sea salt, Hawaiian red algea.
The black salt ingredients: sea salt, activated charcoal
Do you find this slightly deceptive?
I'm still looking forward to trying the salts.
Have you ever tried such things? What did/do you think about them?
