Kalahari literally means “the waterless place”. 280 million years ago, this desert held a salt lake - Makgadikgadi - which has since vanished, leaving a salt desert in its place. It is in this natural underground salt lake, now dried out, in the Kalahari desert in South Africa, that this salt is harvested manually, pumped from deep underground before being dried in the sun. When you crunch this salt, your palate is filled with iodine notes, as if you had taken a bite from the ocean. Beautifully intense, but never harsh, it gives a very enjoyable and long taste in the mouth. Perfect for vegetables, delicate fish and white meat.

I’m looking forward to use this salt. I am sure it’s great quality but I was a bit disappointed at how small the jar is for the price.
