Himalayan Pink Salt is made from rock crystals of salt that have been mined from areas close to the Himalayas, often in Pakistan. The color hues of this sea salt range from light pink to dusky rose to deep red. Formed about 600 million years ago when a great inland sea evaporated, Himalayan Pink salt’s gorgeous palette comes from a variety of trace minerals including iron, magnesium, copper, and potassium, among others, which have been trapped in the salt crystal matrix. It is mined and then washed by hand and is natural and unprocessed which is why it is famously called the purest salt on earth.
The Pahari Life Herbal salts are a blend of Himalayan Pink Salt and dried herbs grown in the Organic Ramgarh belt of Uttarakhand. Herbal salts are typically used as a finishing salt (meaning that they are usually sprinkled on cooked foods) versus using them during the cooking process itself. In addition to adding a delicious flavor to cooked foods, the other advantage is that the herbs added into the herbal salt blend will remain fresh for a long period of time as a result of mixing with the Himalayan Pink salt.
Sage blended with Himalayan Pink salt with a touch of hill lemon zest and garlic is a perfect example of the little things; how something small can turn your ordinary meal into something special. This pale green sage salt is a great addition to a wide amount of dishes and gives them a salt, crispy and herby touch. It has an intense aroma that immediately makes you long for Italian summer nights. Sprinkle this sage salt over crispy potatoes, a simple soup from roasted tomatoes, eggs, meat, fish, make your own potato chips, add to desserts for a savory burst, top popcorn, or simply use on roasted veggies. The possibilities really are endless!
