About Maldon sea saltEdit

A variety of sea salt produced from the Atlantic waters off the coast of the Maldon area of Essex, England. The salt is made when the waves from the sea wash up over the rocks and leave pools of water, which are evaporated by the sun, leaving the salt on the rocks in the form of crystals. The salt crystals are used whole or ground for cooking and preserving.

It is considered to be a good "finishing" salt that provides a delicate light flavor for seasoning foods.
