Another cool find...

I also found some great salt at TJ Maxx last weekend. I finally tried it last night. It's French Grey Sea Salt from Pepper Creek Farms, a "family-run company based in Oklahoma." In addition to being beautiful, this salt has an incredibly pure taste. And the texture adds another dimension to it and to the dishes. It would also be great as a finishing salt. The 10 ounce jar retails for $6. I got the max for the minimum: $3.99.

I'm not that into baking (baking is a science, cooking is an art - I'm more of the artsy type), but this salt has inpsired me to work on a recipe for a grown-up cupcake. I'm thinking some sort of chocolate-caramel-grey salt flavor explosion would be grand...

I make homemade caramel corn to give to friends around the holidays. This year I added a generous amount of fleur de sel and then drizzled chocolate over it. it was a big hit and the salt totally made the difference.

"French" salt from Oklahoma?

The Web site says the company is based in Oklahoma. Doesn't say the salt is mined there...

... mined or evaporated, I should say...
