Himalayan Pink Salt 300g pouch - Steenbergs details and description
Steenbergs Pink Himalayan Salt comes from Pakistan, where it is mined at the Khewra salt mines. Himalayan pink salt has a pebble like structure and a light pink colour within its white crystalline structure. Steenbergs Pink Himalayan Salt is a luxury that should be used like a normal table salt. Other names include sendha namak and namak.
Himalayan pink salt is mined from salt deposits in the Potwar Plateau of Pakistani Punjab. Himalayan pink salt comes from an ancient sea salt deposit in sedimentary rock dating back 290-543 million years ago - so it is old. Some estimate there to be 6.7 billion tons of rock salt, of which 220 million are currently commercially viable, so there is quite a lot of salt to go for. Himalayan pink salt is 97-99% pure salt/NaCl, with a transparent pinky hue. The flavour of pink Himalayan salt is pungent, mineral with some spiciness tones to it.

Use Himalayan pink salt like normal sea salt, but works well with game birds, venison steaks or ground as a finishing salt over steaks or steaks. Why not try it as a finishing salt for this butter caramel recipe?
