Description

The fine natural Sicilian sea salt crystals from the salt pans of Trapani are found on the tables of many Italian restaurants. The coastline around Trapani in western Sicily presents ideal conditions for salt production with a shallow swampy landscape, internal winds and warm Mediterranean climate. The volcanic rock surrounding the area gives the salt a distinctive sweetness.

Italian producer, Borrometi, selects the best sea salt derived from naturally occurring basins around the coastline, with harvesting commencing in March and continuing throughout the summer.

Also available in the Iodised variety.

about the producer

Salt farming in Sicily is an ancient tradition. Giovanni Borrometi began farming the sea salt of the west coast of Sicily near Trapani in the first decade of the 1900’s, transporting it by horse and cart across the island to Ragusa on the western coast.  The salt is processed into fine crystal salt or coarse salt before it is purified for packaging and is now sold all around the world.

    Great tasting salt but unfortunately it reacts to the Aussie humidity and is difficult to shake. IMO flakes salt is the best for our climate.

    This product used to be great, but having recently re-ordered six packs of it, I was extremely disappointed to find they have changed the packaging in such a way that it is now incredibly difficult to open, and furthermore the contents are so damp and clumped it’s almost impossible to extract any salt.
