What is this Stuff? FLEUR DE SEL
Fleur de sel garnish on caramel
Fleurdesel is a lovely type of sea salt, primarily harvested in Brittany, France. In French, the name means “flower of salt,” and as this implies, fleurdesel is very delicate and fluffy. Many people add it to dishes after they are already cooked to add a faint crunchy texture and a distinctive flavor. A lot of times fleur de sel is used as a garnish for chocolates and caramels. I'm already dreaming of holiday truffles rolled around in some of this sweet and salty love.
