The Flower of salt has been recognized for many years as the excellence of salt; a taste treasure accessible today to everyone. Traditionally and until recently, its consumption was the privilege of salt workers, on the saline. His harvest is very special. In summer, when the wind stops blowing, millions of salt crystals form on the surface of the water to give birth to the Camargue Flower salt. In respect of the traditions, it is harvested manually. Composed of slightly damp crystals, the Camargue Flower of saltl melts slowly under the tongue and delicately enhances the flavor of the dishes it accompanies.
