We stopped in at Williams-Sonoma this weekend, one of our favorite food stores, and when we saw the Maldon sea salt just couldn't resist a splurge. It's hard to find. The salt crystals are hand harvested by a small family-run business in the U.K. and certified organic. Of course you can't have such high quality salt with the best peppercorn blend!
Maldon salt has a flaked texture and a saltier taste than other salts which means you can use less. It's texture makes it great for finishing dishes such as seafood and excellent for soft boiled eggs.
