Alder Smoked Salt


For my birthday, Jumpin' J and his mom and dad sent me a grinder of Salish, Alder Smoked Salt from Saltworks. It is a Pacific Sea Salt that is slow smoked over real alderwood, and a wonderful way to add authentic smoked flavor with no strange aftertaste. They recommend using it for cooking fish, chicken, steak or to top a creamy pasta dish.

My favorite use for it so far has been on my leftover steamed chicken and vegetables. I sprinked on a little bit of lime juice, then some of the salt. The smokiness of the salt and tartness of the lime juice made the perfect contrast and made a very healthy meal delicious. Actually now that I'm talking about it, I want it again! I've also tried it sprinkled on popcorn for a lot of flavor without all the calories of butter.

Thank you Jumpin' J and parents!
