So, what is sal de guérande?

Sal de Guérande is a type of sea salt that is hand-harvested from the salt marshes along the coast of Brittany, France. The process of harvesting this salt involves a traditional method that dates back centuries, where sea water is carefully channeled into shallow clay ponds to evaporate under the sun and wind. This unique process gives Sal de Guérande its distinctive mineral flavor and greyish color, and it is known for its high mineral content, including magnesium, potassium, and calcium. It is an essential ingredient in French cuisine and is used to enhance the flavor of a wide variety of dishes, from seafood to chocolate.
