The Republic’s “white gold”
Modern day value is seen in the production of the flower of salt or as the French refer it fleur de sel. The coarse salt settles on the bottom of the marsh, but salt crystals form on the surface, forming a delicate crust of snowflake crystals. The delicacy requires that it be harvested by hand, so this is done with traditional methods using traditional tools such as wooden rakes. It can only be collected in small batches when it is very sunny, dry and with slow, steady winds. Perfect seasoning for your favorite recipes.
