Gourmet Salt Giveaway from SaltWorks, Inc

get fresh recipes via email:

Rosemary and Smoked Salt Roasted Almonds

When it comes to salt, there’s so much more to explore than plain old iodized. Even beyond kosher and sea salt, there is an entire world of specialty and gourmet salts out there. A unique salt can add the perfect finishing touch to any dish, sweet OR savory. A good, quality salt is more than just sodium, it adds flavor and punch and intensity. With high quality gourmet sea salts like those carried by SaltWorks®, Inc, you get MORE flavor by ultimately using LESS salt.

Like yesterday’s Rosemary and Smoked Salt Roasted Almonds, a gourmet salt can take a dish to delicious new heights. Whether it is a flurry of Himalayan pink salt finishing off your next salad, or a touch of savory smoked salt on your next batch of popcorn. Or hey, sprinkle a bit of flake sea salt on the top of your next batch of chocolate chip cookies (you’ll thank me later).

Salt Lovers Giveaway from SaltWorks, Inc

That’s why I’m so excited for today’s giveaway. Not only will you get the Wildfire® smoked salt blend I used in yesterday’s recipe (along with it’s two smokey companions – a $39.95 value), you’ll also receive the Artisan Bamboo Salt Sampler with 24 gourmet salt flavors in a gorgeous bamboo presentation box. This set alone is valued at $124.95. From black salt to pink salt, fine salt to coarse salt, smoked salt to mountain spring salt, this set has it all.

  20. We have a sea salt grinder from Trader Joe’s that is smoked sea salt with garlic and crushed red pepper. My husband alternates between that and sriracha (sometimes both!) to make leftovers interesting :) And I have to agree – if a pot of soup needs a little kick, that salt is an easy answer! YUM! :)

  63. I have never used specialty salts but the smokey flavored ones sound amazing. I would live to make those almonds!

  64. I’m new to specialty salt, so I can’t really say (just felt like a bad-ass using flaked sea salt from World Market, hee). I’m guessing I’ll go NUTS for smoked salts, though, because smoked anything (well, vegetarian, heh) is a selling point for me. Smoked cheeses are the best!

  65. I have had Chipotle salt and it was awesome. not much variety where I live and would love to try more specialty salts!!

  66. I like to pretend I’m going to use smoked salts to just kick up my chili and my black bean soup, but in reality lots of it ends up on spicy margaritas.
