I’ve long been a fan of sea salt, but now that I’ve discovered all-natural, Maine-harvested Quoddy Mist Sea Salt, others dull by comparison. It has depth, flavor, and far less sodium than common salt. I discovered it during my recent trip to Lubec, but you can order it online, too.
I’m currently smitten by the dulse flavor (What’s dulse, you ask? Seaweed, so it has a briney taste and is rich in sea minerals), but there are about a dozen or so choices, give or take, from plain to Cajun. Pricey, but only a teensy pinch does the trick. If you’re in Lubec, you can even get a free tour of the processing facility to see how it’s havested and dried.
