So, what is sel gris?

Sel gris, also known as "grey salt," is a coarse sea salt that's harvested using traditional methods. Unlike regular table salt, which is heavily processed and stripped of minerals, sel gris is hand-harvested and retains its natural minerals, giving it a unique flavor and texture. Its distinctive grey color comes from the clay in the salt beds where it's harvested. Sel gris has a slightly moist texture and a briny taste, making it a popular ingredient in French cuisine, particularly for finishing dishes like meats, seafood, and vegetables. It's also used in baking, as its coarse texture helps create a crunchy crust on breads and pastries.
