Price: View !!!
Salt production at Cervia, a small town between Ravenna and Cesenatico on Italy’s Adriatic coast, dates back more than 2,000 years, beginning with a mixed history dealing with the Umbrans and Greeks. Its name comes from the Latin “acervus” meaning a mound of white salt, called “white gold.”
Sale di Cervia is entirely sea salt, with 2-4% natural humidity, it is never artificially dried or blended with anti-caking additives. This method preserves all of the minor elements found in sea water: iodine, zinc, copper, manganese, iron, magnesium and potassium. The salt workers closely monitor the entrance of concentrated salt water and as soon as sodium chloride has formed, run off the mother brine which contains the bitter chlorides. This and the muds formed are used for therapy treatments at Cervia spas.
Sale di Cervia is harvested from the last remaining artisanal, seasonal, salt flats in Italy. This precious commodity is used in the salting of two famous products of the Emilia Romagna: parmigiano reggiano cheese and prosciutto di Parma. Use this "white gold" to season vegetables, carpaccio, roasted meats, grilled fish, salads and more.
Each burlap bag contains 2.2 pounds net weight of Sale di Cervia Medium Coarse Adriatic Sea Salt from Italy.
