Salts and Cellars

IMG_2831Sometimes we want to give a gift that’s just a little bit different, a little bit special for someone who loves to cook and to eat. That’s why we thought a set of Elaine’s salt cellars no two are quite alike, as you can see, all handmade, with a jar of La Vie Rustic’s salts might be just the thing.

The salt can go right onto the table in the salt cellars or kept in the kitchen. Use the salts just as you would any other – a pinch or a sprinkle to perk up flavor. Sel de Sarritte, with its earthy, almost umami flavor is perfect for beans, but also to use in soups, stews and with meats. I personally like it on cottage cheese. Sel d’Agrume, with its orange and lemon zests is ideal for fish dishes and salads, even a dash on chocolate mousse. The salt in the mixtures comes from the ancient salt ponds of Guerande, on the Atlantic coast of France. It is a tiny bit moist, and smells ever so slightly of the ocean. ….$24.00  Please be sure to specify on the note section of the order form the color of the salt cellar set (see salt cellars for colors) and the type of salt you would like.

Happy Holidays!
