India / Mineral Blend
Not a true salt, Black Salt is actually a complex mineral compound with a rich sulfur content- this stuff stinks until you cook it. The sulfurous odor hits quickly and then dissipates to leave a deep, mineral salt taste. Perfect with seafood and in masalas from the Indian subcontinent. Also really good sprinkled on steaks...really.
