Amagansett Sea Salt is premium finishing salt. Reduce salt from your cooking and then dress your plated foods with our sea salt. Everything you eat will look, feel and taste better!
Amagansett Sea Salt is crafted entirely by hand in small batches from seawater harvested from the Atlantic Ocean. All steps – from the ocean to the jar – take place in Amagansett, a small, oceanfront hamlet in the Hamptons area of Long Island, New York. Our process is entirely natural, requiring only the sun, the wind, a strong back, and patience. By carefully balancing solar evaporation and exposure to the crisp, clear ocean breezes, our Amagansett Sea Salt forms slowly into crystals with a mild, sweet, flavor and a distinctive soft “crunch” that enhances any food. Clean water. Clean air. Exceptional sea salt.
The best salt comes from clean, cold, fast-moving ocean water solar-evaporated outdoors in clean, fresh ocean air. We are not a salt importer or blender; rather we make our crystals. We do not boil or oven-dry our seawater or salt. Our salt is made outdoors and not in a greenhouse. We use no chemicals or anti-caking agents. We have taken excruciatingly difficult steps to eliminate all metal from contacting our sea water and salt crystals. Producing salt this way is hard and labor intensive, but the results are worth it.
Amagansett Sea Salt is valued for its briny taste of the Northeast and the Atlantic (many chefs describe it as akin to, but superior than, Fleur de Sel), pleasingly distinct texture (not too hard and not too soft), and perfect grain size and shape that does not dissolve like a flake salt. Our sea salt is used in top ranked restaurants and by producers of high end food products and home cooks across the U.S. and the world.
All salt is not sea salt. All sea salt is not naturally solar evaporated. All solar evaporated sea salt is not the same. Try our Amagansett Sea Salt finishing salt and we are sure you will agree.
