Being a single momma I’m the only one doing the cooking in the house. I am also very fortunate that Peyton will try pretty much anything, at least once. So I like to try out different spices, meats, and recipes because it’s fun and I have a captive audience! Hamptons Salt Company is the preeminent provider of all natural sea salt. They have the best selection of raw salts, flavored salts or smoked salts from all over the world. And they have no additives in any of their products.
I just adore the gift sets available at Hamptons Salt. My favorite is the The Flavor Seeker collection. It’s filled with 5 different artisan sea salts in 1-ounce jars, perfect for trying out flavors before committing to a large jar. The collection includes – Rosemary, Smoked Hickory, Ghost Pepper, Garlic and Black Truffle. All very unique flavors. At first glance, you may wonder what in the world would I use them in? But there are so many uses!
The Rosemary Sea Salt would be delicious over some herb roasted potatoes. Just take a bag of red russets, cut them into bite-size pieces, toss with olive oil, rosemary sea salt and some pepper and they are ready to roast! The Rosemary Sea Salt would also go well with other vegetables, poultry, lamb and even in eggs for a salty fresh herb flavor.
The Smoked Hickory is perfect for BBQ season! It’ll add a hint of hickory to any of your meats. You can even sprinkle it on your salad for a little BBQ infusion!
When I saw the Ghost Pepper I instantly thought about my homemade chili, I wonder if it would kick it up a notch? And it will! This is one of the hottest salts in the world.
I use garlic on everything so when I saw Garlic Sea Salt I was excited, now I have another option to sprinkle on my vegetables, potatoes and add into recipes. For me, I’ll be using this one the most and will probably need to order a large container soon.
And the last is Black Truffle, I’ve heard of Black Truffle oil used in moderation for recipes but never Black Truffle Sea Salt. Black Truffles are uber expensive but add a unique and coveted flavor to many dishes. You can sprinkle the black truffle sea salt on eggs, pasta, potatoes, and even popcorn! You’ll have the coveted flavor without the price tag.
If you are looking for the perfect gift for a foodie or gourmet this is a box you should take a closer look at. It was a huge hit in our home.
