French Grey Sea Salt (Sel Gris)

"French grey salt is harvested from the clay-lined bottom layer of salt flats where it picks up minerals and obtains its characteristic silvery color. I love grey salt for its versatility: it works equally well as a cooking or a finishing salt, since it is fine enough to dissolve easily, and granular enough to add a little texture. Moist and briny, sel gris invites the ocean to your table." - Clare's Staff Picks, 2020
