Just one taste of salt and lime's classic flavour profile will transport you to a summer's day. To craft a flavour that will keep your kitchen inspired in every season, we infuse our original Fleur de Sel with fresh lime juice and a hint of zested peel to brighten up any dish from seafood to shortbread, plus it's a natural addition to your margarita night.
All of our sea salt is harvested close to home, on Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore and in St. George's Bay, near Antigonish. First, we collect fresh salt water, one bucket at a time. Next, we concentrate the salt water for 14–18 hours. As the steam rises and water evaporates, sea salt crystals come together to form an intricate, snowflake-like crust, which we harvest with hand strainers.
Known as fleur de sel, steam-harvested sea salt has a higher moisture content than common salt, and a host of other minerals particular to where it's harvested that add complex flavours you won't find anywhere else in the world.
Wine lovers have long celebrated terrior, the idea that a region's climate affects the flavour of the food grown there. The same is true of salt water. The delicate crystalline structure of our original Fleur de Sel makes it slow to dissolve on your tongue, letting the terroir of the Nova Scotian coast and fresh coffee linger after every bite.
Nova Scotia's complex geology and specific the flora and fauna of these ocean locations, create a taste profile unique to the time and place of the harvest.
Use it as you would common salt or as a finishing spice before serving to deepen the flavour of your favourite foods. We suggest using Tidal Salt Lime on:
