I could not wait to receive the spice lab gourmet collection of sea salt in the mail. My fiancé and I both are huge fans of salt and even keep a salt shaker in the living room where we eat dinner because we know we will always have to add salt to our meal. When I first opened my package I first thought how neat and pretty that it was packaged. But once I pulled out the bamboo designed casing of the six tubes of sea salt I couldn’t wait to get this opened and displayed on my counter! Not only is it neat the way that each Pyrex tube is displayed it also adds a gourmet look to your kitchen. Each tube is made of Pyrex glass and has a pretty cork to keep it sealed and keep moisture out. There is a cute little spoon made out of bamboo that fits perfect in the top of the tubes and also allows you to get just the right amount of salt out that you need.
Some of the flavors I received included cypress wild garlic flakes, Hawaiian habanera, smoked chipotle, cherrywood smoked salt, and more!! We cannot wait to see what types of concoctions we can come up with with all of these different types of salt. I used a little bit of the Hawaiian habanero to rim a Bloody Mary, and it added an amazing flavor to it. Had just the right amount of spice but also gave me that salty flavor that I am a joy with this drink. Another nice surprise in my package was the rustic dipping herbs and seasonings made to sprinkle in olive oil and used as a dip. The flavor we received was spicy Italian sun-dried tomatoes, and it is delicious. One of our most favorite restaurants brings out bread with an olive oil dipping sauce and now we can enjoy that at home as well. It only takes a small amount so the 2-ounce bag will last us a long time. I enjoy making homemade bread in my bread maker, and now there are never any leftovers. This would make a great gift for anyone who enjoys eating or who enjoys cooking. For that one person that you have no idea what to buy for them I’m sure this would put a smile on their face.
