Guerande coarse salt is an unrefined natural salt enriched with elements, especially magnesium.
It is harvested by hand in France and celebrated in kitchens throughout the world. Excellent as a finishing and table salt. It is a rather moist salt, so it does not dry out the food while seasoning, and in addition, it is denser than regular table salt, so less amount of it has to be used to bring out the best flavors in the dishes.
The grey color of Guerande salt comes from the rain lightly disturbing the clay at the bottom of the salt ponds from which the salt is harvested.
Guerande salt is very rich in minerals but has a lower level of sodium than regular salt. Guerande enhances all recipes and is particularly good with seafood, steak, or anything else you can find in a French kitchen.
