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!
