Alaea is the traditional Hawaiian table salt used to season and preserve foods. Aleaea is non-processed and is rich in trace minerals, all found in the sea water. A small amount of the natural mineral “Alae” (volcanic baked red clay) enriches the salt with iron-oxide, seals in the moisture, and adds flavor while also giving the salt its distinctively attractive red color.
The Hawaiian clay gives the salt a subtle, earthy flavor with a slightly mellower taste than regular sea salt. Alaea is perfect for making tasty spice blends and rubs for meat, and particularly brings out the flavor when roasting or grilling the meat. It’s perfect for pork loin, Kalua Pig, steak, and is also the traditional and authentic seasoning for the native Hawaiian dishes Jerky and Poke.
