Finishing, Table& Cooking Salt - All Natural
Red Alaea clay is prized by native Hawaiians for its spiritual and health benefits. Traditionally Hawaiians use Alaea in ceremonies to cleanse, purify and bless tools, canoes, as well as in medicinal healing rituals.
The finest Red Alaea clay is extracted from veins between layers of lava rock. The clay is then purified, refined, then bonded to the finest White Hawaiian Sea Salt.
The newest Hawaiian salt is made through a similar process as the Red Alaea Salt, but with a twist. A lighter touch is used when bonding the Red Alaea clay to the salt crystal. This not only yields a more delicate flavor, but also allows the crystalline reflective structure of the salt to shine through-attracting a more special allure.
How To Use: This stunning pink salt will look great on your favorite meats. Add a pop to anything such as white fish.
About The Spice Lab
In Christmas 2009, technology entrepreneur Brett Cramer wanted to share his newfound fascination with gourmet sea salts with his family and friends.
Enjoying woodworking as well as being an avid gourmet cook, he handcrafted a wooden base out of scrap lumber to hold test tubes filled with exotic sea salts from around the world. The gifts were so popular that he was encouraged to begin offering his sea salt collections for sale – and that was the start of The Spice Lab.
The Spice Lab website quickly expanded as Brett continued to discover new sources and sea salt varieties from throughout the United States and far off locales. From Cyprus Citron Lemon Flake Salt, Bolivian Rose Sunset Salt and Persian Blue Diamond Rock Salt to Hawaiian Bamboo Jade Salt and Pink Himalayan Crystals valued for their therapeutic properties, every offering had a unique taste and tale.
Throughout 2010, the business grew as the company added an array of smoked sea salts and salt collections and became a direct importer. Ending their dot.com business ownership in January 2011, Brett and his wife Jennifer along with a growing staff now devote their energies full time to building The Spice Lab and its retail distribution.
As a young computer store retailer in the 1980s, Brett took pride in offering the widest selection of every possible type of software, often bringing in games from Europe before they could be found in the United States. With that same desire to give his customers the fullest range of products, The Spice Lab now boasts over 180 different salts from 30 countries, the largest selection of sea salts available from a single source.
The product line includes 120 jarred sea salts and 17 different Salt Collections – in four, six or 11 test tube sets, each with an American-made, handcrafted wooden base constructed from recycled shipping pallets and other discarded wood.
With the message to “Taste the World of Salt ™”, The Spice Lab brings exotic flavors and intoxicating fragrances to everyone who likes to experiment with foods and discover new taste combinations.
Professional chefs and home cooks alike now are using gourmet sea salts to enhance their culinary creations.
The Spice Lab, Inc. is a family-owned business based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
