My first introduction to Himalayan salt was when I started making raw food recipes many of which call for pink Himalayan salt. During my research I came across HimalaSalt which is ” the only Ethically Sourced, Artisan Made Pink Himalayan Sea Salt that is Kosher Certified, Green-e Certified (made by 100% renewable wind and solar energy), sustainably packaged, with 5% of profits going to the environment and back to the source community (source).”
HimalaSalt sent me a great package of their products which included a shaker of the HimalaSalt, salt grinder, garlic salt, salt and pepper (great travel size ones) and my favorite the HimalaSalt Zen Cube. You’re probably wondering ‘what do you do with this giant cube of salt?’; I wondered the same thing and HimalaSalt has a page on their website devoted just to answering this:
“What I’ve Used It For…
Grating finely over edamame, ice cream, caramel, salads, finishing off grilled fish, watermelon, chocolate ganache, grilled vegetables, rice, beans, cucumbers and raw veggies with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, it’s like a meditation or a moment to pause and be grateful for the abundance and blessings I have, to be able to eat the best organic natural foods available, and especially to be able to feed those to my children and friends. (source)“
I haven’t yet tried the Zen Cube but I am looking forward to trying it on my next batch of edamame that I steam up.
I honestly can’t say enough how much I love this salt and since trying it there is no way I am going back to any other salt. The flavor is so distinct and tasty as well the product is eco-friendly.
