Rare Lynx is pleased to bring you this authentic PDO (Protect Designation of Origin) flor de sal of Algarve, Portugal, more familiarly known as fleur de sel or “the caviar of salt”. This is the very fine top layer or “cream” of the sea salt, which form into flower like crystals, and then is hand harvested from salt gardens, using a traditional technique which dates back to before Roman times, making it a true artisanal food product. It is in this fine layer that the majority of trace minerals are concentrated, and where the most delicate perfumes and delicious flavors of salt reside. Use as the finishing touch to any food dish, to bring new heightened gastronomical experience to your food dishes. Because of its relative scarcity it is a truly rare product. Let your taste buds blossom!
