10E2261: Maldon Sea Salt Flakes

Sis put me onto Maldon Salt recently but well known to many already. Crumbly, flaky salt that dissolves very easily. Clean finish etc. Established in 1882 and receiving its Royal Warrant in 2012, Maldon is an overnight success 130 years in the making.

"Seawater is filtered and boiled which, reassuringly, removes any impurities, and then heated until the salt crystallises. If this sounds easy, there’s an art in temperature and timing and in particular, the traditional ‘drawing’ of the salt by hand from the pans, that confounds anyone without a saltmaker’s skills." - How Maldon Salt is made.
