Gourmet Salt Giveaway from SaltWorks, Inc

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. Way more than a grain of salt, I’ll say that much!

  38. Not sure if I have a favorite, but I saw an espresso sea salt that I’d like to try on brownies…

  39. I was recently introduced to vanilla bean sea salt – recipe from Joy the Baker.  It’s wonderful for lightly salted sprinkles on cupcakes, cookies, etc.

  40. That would be a hard choice. I’ve never tried flavored salts.

  41. I subscribe to Love & Olive Oil.

  42. i’m subscribed to loveandoliveoil!

  44. I use a very chunky Hawaiian sea salt on top of chocolate chip cookies – fantastic!

  45. I haven’t tried many, so I can’t choose a favorite yet. I like Fleur de Sel and Himalayan Pink Sea Salt. 

  46. I’m still learning about food and cooking, and would relish (pun intended) the opportunity to try a bunch of different salts.  It’s only recently that my cooking has evolved from basic table salt to sea salt.  Experimenting with different salts is proving to be more difficult than I thought.  (I recently tried to find Maldon salt in a couple of grocery stores in my town, but no luck.)  I can’t wait to experiment with everything I can find!  

  47. I love black truffle salt. So good on so many things, especially French fries.

  48. Love the Himalayan salt.  I use it on everything!

  49. The apple wood smoked salt sounds amazing.

  57. I haven’t tried gourmet salts, but I bet they would be awesome as a simple seasoning on roasted veggies or popcorn.

  58. I tweeted:

  59. Truffle salt sprinkled over extra virgin olive oil 

  60. I’ve only tried the pink Himalayan, truffle, lavender, and the vanilla sea salts but I’d love try try them all! I use them in recipes in place of table salt, on popcorn and really on just about anything. I’ve followed you on Feedly for awhile now

  61. I think the Applewood Smoked Sea Salt sounds delicious! I love to try it with a savory desert or a yummy potato dish!

  95. My favorite specialty salt is rosemary-infused sea salt that you can make with a recipe from the book Food in Jars. It is great on pasts, with oil as a bread dipping sauce, and in soups.

  96. I haven’t tried many salts, but I’d love to!
