Spice Lab Gourmet Sea Salt Review and Giveaway
You know me trying to find great and new product to share with you guys. Well I came across a great site called The Spice Lab Gourmet Sea Salts. I never thought in a million years that there was so many different kinds of Sea Salt. When I was on their site I learned a lot of fun information. It was neat to see all the different kind of Sea Salts that were available. The Spice Lab Gourmet Sea Salts have 180 different kind of sea salts and they come from 30 different countries. I thought that was amazing. I was intrigued looking at the different salts on the site that they had a variety of different colors and texture and that all serves a purpose.
I received a beautiful gift box with a beautiful spice rack with a sample of four different kinds of Sea Salts to try. It also came with a wooden spoon that was really cute. In my sample back I received the following Sea Salts: Hawaiian Black Lava, Hawaiian Bamboo Jade, Hawaiian Pink Passion, Hawaiian Red Alaea.
The first Sea Salt that I was able to try was Hawaiian Black Lava Seal Salt no. 13. I can see why this this salt has received the named Black Lava. The salt looks just like black lava. This salt is black in color and has a silky texture to it. When you use this salt do not use it while you are cooking. By using this product while yu are cooking it will dissolve and the added black element will settle at the bottom of what ever you are cooking. The best way to use Black Lava is to use this as a finishing salt. You can use this salt on foods such ad seafood, pork and vegetables.
The second salt is Hawaiian Bamboo Jade no. 58. The Jade green salt is a combination of the best Hawaii and Chinese herbal medicine. This is a certified organic bamboo leaf extract. This is considered one of their prized ingredients over in Southern China. This salt is a finishing salt and has the following in infriedents amino acids, antioxidants and vitamins. This will be great with all types of Asian cuisines example this would work great in stir fry, soups, porks, chickens, and beef dishes. This could also be the salt on the rim of your favorite cocktail.
The third salt is Hawaiian Pink Passion no. 56 and the Red Alaea Sea Salt. The Pink Passion is a Alarea red seal salt and is full of rich minerals and iron. That is how it gets it stunning color. What I thought was interesting that originally this was used in ceremonies to cleanse, purify and used for blessing, and healing. This is the finest clay that is extracted from the veins between the layers of lava rock which is very interesting. Then this clay is purified and refined after that processed it is bonded with white Hawaiian sea salt. This is used for seasoning fish and meant. This would be a great seasoning since it has iron and that a major plus for my daughter.
I really enjoyed these products and learning so much from this product. I never new the process of the sea salts and to find them from lava. That was interesting also. The amazing part is this is amazing on meats and fish. I would highly recommend these sea salts and you can find their products HERE.
