From il Buco: These 100% natural sea salts are harvested in western Sicily by the natural evaporation of seawater with the aid of the sun and wind. The sea salt retains at least 90% of the ocean’s trace elements including iodine, fluorine, magnesium and potassium with a much lower percentage of sodium chloride than regular table salt.
The sea salt is produced by a salt mill called Moranella that was built in 1884, in the salt pans of Trapani. The salt pans are filled with seawater in the spring and left to evaporate relying on the heat of the Sicilian summer sun and the strong African winds. The salt is harvested and packed by hand.
Our dear friends, Massimo and his wife Alberta operate the salina along with the local cooperative of young Trapanese salt-makers taught by the great masters of tradition.
Fennel Salt Pairings: Pairs well with fish and roasted chicken
