Alaea: Hawaiian Sea Salt
Alaea at New Canaan Olive Oil
Why we love it: A pinch of this salt over salad adds a touch of flavor and crunch, without too much saltiness.
Description: Traditionally Hawaiians use Alaea salt in ceremonies to cleanse, purify and bless tools and canoes, as well, in healing rituals for medicinal purposes. Alaea is the traditional Hawaiian table salt used to season and preserve. It is non-processed and rich in trace minerals, all of which are found in sea water. A small amount of harvested reddish Hawaiian clay (‘Alaea) enriches the salt with Iron-Oxide.
Suggested Uses: roasting or grilling meats, traditional and authentic seasoning for native Hawaiian
