Falksalt

Flaky salt crystals made according to age-old fishermen methods

Embracing traditional production methods, Falksalt's large, pure crystals easily crush between fingers for a more hands-on approach to cooking. The Swedish brand, which has been making salt since 1830, uses the same combination of heat and time that fishermen stumbled on centuries ago to produce delicate pyramid-shaped flakes.

With flavors like Citron, Rosemary, Red Chili, Smoke and Wild Mushrooms, in addition to Natural (white) and Black crystals, the naturally-processed sea salt makes a great way to finish a dish but also works exceptionally as a marinade for meats or as an additive when baking bread (particularly Rosemary).

Falksalt sells online or at grocers around Sweden for about $5 a jar.
