Siratany Madagascan Bourbon Salt Calico Bag, Steenbergs details and description
Madagascan Bourbon Salt is a pure salt with a clean white colour. It is prepared by women in the Ankazombalala rural commune in south-west Madagascar.
Three villages prodce Madagscan Bourbon Salt, or Siratany (salt of the earth) in Malagasy. Women collect soil from source sites, then mix the soil with water and filter the soil through reed sieves. This separates the salt from the soil. The brine is then boiled to remove the water, leaving behind pure Siratany, which is packed and shipped direct to Steenbergs in the UK.
This salt has a light mineral flavour and a relatively low sodium content.
Steenbergs then pack it in the UK sewn calico bags with the tag containing the story of the salt. Make a great gift for gourmet salt lovers.
