From Cyprus in the eastern Mediterrean Sea, these dramatic pyramids not only have salt appeal but sex appeal. Carefully collected it?s actually harvested white (the blackness coming when it?s mixed with charcoal from the island?s volcanic areas; charcoal also acts as a detoxifier and accounts for the unique taste). The stunning pyramid shapes are formed when water, heat and air collide. whether a wonder of nature or work of art, you?ll be glad it happened. Stunning on fish, scallops, sweet potato fries; quick dissolving on tongue, it tastes too special to use in highly seasoned foods.
