 Product Description

French Guerande Salt Flower, or Fleur de sel, has a faint taste of violet, but the best and most revered salt flour is from Guerande. These salt marshes are located in southern Brittany between the Loire and Vilaine rivers.

Here, paludeirs, marsh workers, harvest salt the way it’s been done for centuries. Working with the tides, using only a rake and time honored tradition to collect the salt. Salt here in Guerande has been harvested since the Iron Age, around 300AD/CE. Depending on how they harvest the salt, you can either get French Guerande Salt Flower or Guerande course sea salt, it’s all about technique and application!

The very fine, very white crystals are highly sought after by foodies, but it’s a very strong salt. A little (like many French condiments!) can go a long way, and you can sprinkle a little on cooked or raw food, but not a lot. Don’t use it generously like you might with table salt, let a little bring out the delicious flavor of your meal.

Course and salt flowers enhance the meal, but don’t overpower it. They’re lower in sodium than a table salt, but maintain that richness of the sea with a high mineral content. Since French Guerande Salt Flower can only be formed under special weather and environmental conditions, it makes these some of the most sought after and refined salts you can find worldwide.

  1. Great products and service

    Posted by Michael Gedney on 12th Jun 2013

    This fleur de sel from Guerande is a superb finishing salt. It adds a delicate taste and a bit of crunch to many preparations.
    I appreciated the service from le panier francais, who also ordered some other products for me that weren't shown on the website, and they kept me closely advised on the shipping details. Thanks very much!
