    General Information

    Not just for fried potatoes. Maldon® sea salt flakes

    From the small town of Maldon on the English North Sea coast comes an unusual, exceptionally good and aromatic in taste and "crystal clear" sea salt. For over 100 years, it has been extracted by the "Maldon Crystal Salt Company", a family business: at spring tide from sea water of medium depth by boiling and skimming the salt crystals. The crystalline salt is particularly suitable for seasoning fried potatoes, fish, grilled meat or vegetables after the food has been prepared. In addition, salt is quite suitable for cleaning and maintenance of wrought iron frying pans.

    The white gold: salt

    Salt, essential for our diet, has been a sought-after seasoning since ancient times. Quite a few cities founded their prosperity on the rare commodity, the "white gold", such as Halle (from Old High German hall = salt), Schwäbisch Hall or Bad Reichenhall.

    Differences. Small, but fine

    Today salt is available everywhere and in almost any quantity, much of it comes from industrial production and is sodium chloride in its pure form. However, cooks and connoisseurs prefer salt from vouched regions of origin, and with traditional extraction methods, a sense for the taste nuances of salts from different provenances is developing again. Because with salt it is apparently like mineral water, whose mineral content measured by volume is also very small and yet significantly affects the taste.

    Scooped from the sea or mined from the mountain

    The oldest form of salt extraction is the evaporation of sea water. On both the Atlantic and North Sea coasts, the sea tide is domesticated in salt marshes to this day, and the salt is moved from basin to basin under the sun until crystals form at a salt content of 280 g/l. The fleur de sel, the highest quality, is then skimmed off as a wafer-thin layer by hand with a wooden shovel.
    Later, salt began to be extracted from underground veins in the form of brine. This was also the case in Luisenhall, where the brine was first extracted from great depths into saline basins. A view of the Luisenhall salt works hall shows the turquoise-green brine resting in oak basins so that suspended matter can settle before it is fed into the boiling pans. There the salt boils until the salt crystals can be harvested.
