The Cyprus Flake-Mediterranean Sea Salt is a uniquely large, white pyramid-shaped crystal formed from naturally evaporated sea salt. These stunning, light, and flaky crystals are harvested in the Mediterranean Sea surrounding the island of Cyprus. Cyprus Flake Sea Salt is created through the process of solar evaporation of sea water, where the water is channeled into shallow ponds and lagoons called “salins”, and then into large pans where the water is gradually heated, forming the dazzling pyramid shapes. The flakes provide a strong crunch and dissolves quickly, have a delicate texture and mild flavor, and is a versatile salt that can be used for a variety of applications, including baking, brining, seasoning meat, seafood, vegetables, pasta, and sauces. It is most popularly used for garnishing dishes and in gourmet food products. These crystals create a dramatic culinary presentation, making them a new favorite among chefs.
