Fleur de sel (pronounced "flure-de-SELL") is a rare and expensive form of sea salt that is harvested in parts of France & elsewhere in the world. The name fleur de sel is French for "flower of salt." Fleur de sel is produced by a process that is considerably more complicated, which involves collecting the thin layer of salt that rises to the surface of shallow pools of seawater. It comes from the delicate crystals of salt that form atop shallow pools of seawater, and must be harvested by hand by skimming them from the surfaces of these pools using special sieves. The result is a much more delicate, almost flaky crystal.
Darling Sweet fleur de sel sea salt crystals are hand harvested from the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean in Velddrif, 90 km north of Darling in South Africa. The ancient saltwater from which their fleur de sel is harvested, is taken from a pristine underground seawater lake at St. Helena Bay, where the water from the ocean filters through beds of seashells resulting in salt that is rich in calcium.
