Within this package, big, crunchy flakes of pure Welsh sea salt meld with ground roasted garlic in a blend that’s at once brightly flavored and richly, deliciously garlicky. A natural mate for spuds, this garlic salt is delectable stirred into a creamy mash or sprinkled over baked potatoes or French fries. When you’re feeling snackish, try mixing some Halen Môn salt into your guacamole or making your own tortilla crisps: Toss triangles of corn tortilla with olive oil, grated Parmesan and a healthy dash of garlic salt. Then spread the triangles in one layer on a baking sheet and toast in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Voila crunchy garlic goodness.
This mouthwatering mix begins with filtered seawater drawn from the strait around the Welsh Isle of Anglesey. After gentle heating in a vacuum to concentrate the salt, the brine is released into shallow evaporation tanks to crystallize. When the crystals grow so large that they sink to the bottom of the tanks, the salt is harvested by hand, carefully rinsed in brine until it glistens, slowly dried and finally mixed with plenty of roasted garlic powder. It’s a meticulous process that pays off with ample savory flavor.
