    Fleur de sel

    Any recommendations on Fleur de sel? I had quite a lot of the Penzy's stuff and it is running out. Anyone have any preferences? I'd certainly appreciate any input you all could provide.

    Thanks in advance,

    Sweaty Paul

    What exactly are you asking for? There are a lot of great finishing salts out there. My go to for general salting is Kosher, but do enjoy a nice finishing salt on the table or over meat before it goes to the table.


      I scored some black truffle Fleur de sel that I use as a finishing salt, on pop corn and eggs. Great stuff but way too expensive.
      I also have some that was smoked with chardonnay barrels, goodness gracious!!



        It is a finishing salt. Only use it on the table never for actual cooking. Penzy's quit selling theirs at my last check and wondered what others might recommend.

        Thanks again,
        Sweaty Paul


          We have an upscale supermarket called Central Market that sales all kinds of salts in bulk.


            Murray River is my favorite finishing salt. Snagged a 10# bag years ago when it was below $100.

            I am also a big fan of Real Salt, which is mined in Utah. I use regular grind and Kosher grind. It's available on Amazon -- use the Amazing Ribs link! Nice bath products which are good for Mothers Day...

              I love Murray River salt!

            Late to the party but try this site. I still like Penzey's better but they're pretty close.
