You might think you know salt. Ben Jacobsen wants you to think again. A few delicate flakes of his Jacobsen Salt Co. finishing salt on your morning eggs and toast will completely change the way you see this humble ingredient. Harvested from the chilly waters of Oregon’s Netarts Bay, these pure sea salts are in a class of their own. World-renowned chefs such as Thomas Keller, Alice Waters, and April Bloomfield all swear by Jacobsen and use it exclusively in their kitchens. Read on to learn more about the artisan salts, seasonings, and sweets offered by this great American company.
Each of the Jacobsen infused salts starts with the original flake salt as its base which is then introduced to incredible flavors like Stumptown Coffee and Grouchau Cellars Pinot Noir. Its large, hand-harvested crystals add a distinctive crunch and bracing salinity that elevates even the simplest of dishes. Sprinkle vanilla bean salt on homemade blondies for a salty-sweet treat, or liven-up roasted chicken with a finishing touch of lemon zest salt. Another favorite is Italian white truffle which makes the perfect accompaniment to a romantic dinner of filet mignon.
In addition to their line of gourmet finishing salts, Jacobsen also cooks up small-batch treats to tempt your sweet tooth. Black licorice, buttery caramel, and honey peanut chews are all given a boost from pure flake sea salt. The candies are flecked throughout with salty goodness, so every bite offers a rewarding crunch. Each box is beautifully packaged for easy gift-giving and the individually wrapped candies look great sitting out for guests to snack on. The only hard part is choosing which one to try first!
