This "Salfiore di Romagna" is the first salt deposited in the flats in Cervia, the last remaining artisanal, seasonal, salt flats in Italy. "Salfiore di Romagna" is often referred to as "Il Sale dei Papi" or "Pope's Salt" as it is traditionally the seasoning sent to the Papal table. In early modern history, salt production belonged to the bishop of Cervia and was taxed heavily.
This medium-fine grain sea salt is used to season vegetables, carpaccio, sushi, roasted meats, grilled fish, salads and more.
Dried in a completely natural process, it maintains 2% humidity and a high concentration of elements like zinc, copper, iron, and magnesium. This same natural process means that other less soluble elements such as sulfates, potassium and magnesium chloride are not present, so you don't get that bitter aftertaste left in your mouth. It is sweeter than other sea salts.
Salt production in Cervia, a small town in Emilia-Romagna (Italy) on the Adriatic Coast, dates back more than 2,000 years.
