What are Finishing Salts?
Pure Island Sea Salt
Our Sea Salt is truly one of a kind. We collect Atlantic sea water from some of the cleanest ocean waters on the planet. When the tides are coming in on the north shore of Prince Edward Island, we go to work. From collection and curing to packaging, PEI Sea Salt Co. is an authentic craft offering from the waters of Prince Edward Island, handmade by Islanders, for the world to enjoy.
The Rossignol family is well known in Prince Edward Island for having the first local winery producing an array of varietals on our red soil terroir. The Marechal Foch, a dark smoky red, is hand-blended with fresh harvest crystalline sea salt – and the result is as beautiful as it is delicious. You’ll want to blend this with fresh cracked black pepper to rub down every single cut of beef for the BBQ, slow-cooker, oven or skillet. Finish a roast chicken or seasonal root vegetables with this amethyst-hued garnish and showcase your personal culinary art to family and friends.
A bit of an intensive undertaking, black garlic is the product of a time-tested method of heating and drying whole bulbs of garlic over the course of a few weeks. Al Pickett, of Kensington’s Eureka Garlic, has become a local legend for his mastery of this process. The resulting “black” garlic and its darkened cloves present a new flavour profile altogether: sweet and subtly savory – reminiscent of caramel, aged balsamic reduction, and black truffle. Garlic salt is a staple in every pantry across Canada – time to step your game up.
Receiver Coffee purchases Fair Trade beans from international farmers as far away as Africa and Central America. The beans are roasted in Charlottetown, producing an array of blends that have become Island favourites. While coffee and salt are not something you’d typically think about together, the way the flavor profiles mingle with each other will add another dimension of taste to BBQ dry rubs and marinades. Sprinkle on vanilla bean ice cream if you’ve ever enjoyed salted caramel or espresso gelato.
