meyer lemon salt [floral]

$7.95


meyer lemon salt! It's made with the peel of the meyer lemons (not the juice) - so it isn't sour, it's floral and zesty.

It's salty, yes, but it's more than just salt: it adds a more complex flavor and spiciness, and something more, I can't quite put my finger on it, deliciousness? 
And speaking of salt (ha! I'm joking! I know all I've been talking about is, well, salt), did you know that the salt we use for this is solar-evaporated right here in the San Francisco Bay? For real. It takes 5 years for the bay water to evaporate into salt crystals! The San Francisco Bay is particularly well-suited for sea salt evaporation thanks to its dry summers, steady breeze, and clay soil. Here is a satellite photos of the salt evaporation ponds in the southern tip of the Bay:

The red color you see in the photo is a result of the high-salinity tolerating Dunaliella algae. Salt ponds in the San Francisco Bay date back to 1854. More recently (2003) most of the salt ponds were sold to state, federal, and nonprofit groups who are in the process of restoring them back to wetlands (I believe the green “ponds” in the bottom right of the photo are those restored wetlands).
