Hawaiian Black (Hiwa Kai)
Our Hawaiian Black Lava salt, a naturally derived Hawaiian sea salt which has been blended with activated charcoal derived from coconut shells. Its grain makes it easy to use and its presence known, but in a subtle way. Well, as subtle as you can be when you are as beautiful as this salt is.
Experiment... this Black Wonder is at its best when paired with red meat, pork, fish, eggplant, potatoes, sashimi, scallops, fruit, kale, buttered popcorn and avocado. It is also pretty happy sitting around the rim of your Friday night cocktail (think Bloody Mary or Margarita).

Our Hawaiian Red sea salt. Aloha! Get your lei and your surfboard and be transported to Hawaii through this fabulous salt. An unrefined sea salt that has been mixed with alae clay to create a unique pink / brown salt. Alae is revered as sacred and is used to heal purify and bless, which gives this salt a special aura. A big seller in America, this salt is highly sought after; not only for its magic, Hawaiian inspired flair but its delicious, tangy flavour.
Experiment... clearly at home with Hawaiian inspired cuisine (think kalua, poke and Hawaiian jerky), this salt is also perfect as a spice rub as it seals in the natural moisture of meats and is great for roasting, with seafood and in sauces, soups and on fruit. It is also perfect for preserving and curing. Its beautiful colour makes it very handy when you are trying to wow your guests. Sprinkle it over the top of your dishes or around the edge of a white plate for a bitt of magic!
