aaa5In the past I have raved about the fine heirloom bean offerings from the fine folks a Rancho Gordo.

Today, I have to rave about another find from the same place – Rancho Gordo’s Ancient Salt Sampler.

About Rancho Gordo’s Ancient Salt Sampler:

“Three unusual salts from Mexico, for cooking, for softening and for finishing. A collection of all three of our imported Mexican salts from Archeological salt mines and marshes. Sal de Mar is chunks of sea salt ready to be crushed in your salt grinder or just tossed into a sauce or stew, as you like. Flor de Sal is comparable to France’s more expensive Fleur de Sel and makes an ideal finishing salt Sal Mixteca is from an ancient mine in Oaxaca that naturally contains bicarbonates that help soften beans and keep vegetables green without the nasty flavor of baking soda. Use just a pinch!”

The Ancient Salt Sampler from Rancho Gordo is the perfect addition to my ever-expanding collection of cool and unique salts.
