RED GUM SMOKED SALT
Smoked salt has been a favorite Scandinavian seasoning for centuries, dating back to the time of Vikings who infused sea salt with smoke from native wood fires. The Olsson family has continued this proud Nordic tradition by smoking their Australian sea salt flakes, from South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, over native river red gum (eucalyptus camaldulensis) for 72 hours in the traditional northern European style at Pialligo Estate Smokehouse, Canberra. The smoking results in a unique salt enhanced with the aromatic and complex characteristics of the Australian red gum wood. Made in collaboration with Ross Lusted. Available in a 90g Jar & 90g Canisters. Sold separately.
Why Choose Olsson's Salt
The Olsson Family have been making solar sea salt since the 1950’s and is the oldest family owned and operated sea salt maker in Australia.
To make its sea salt, Olsson’s use the method called “solar evaporation”. Solar salt is produced by the action of sun and wind on seawater in large ponds. The seawater evaporates in successive ponds until the seawater is fully concentrated and the salt then crystallizes on the floor of the pond. It is then scooped up, washed in seawater, dried and packaged.
There are no chemical processes involved in the manufacture of our product, which is why we guarantee it is perfectly natural.
Solar salt plants must be located In area of low rainfall and high evaporation rates and Olsson’s have the unique advantage of having as its only ingredient seawater from two of the world’s most pristine oceans: The Great Barrier Reef (Port Alma, QLD) and The Great Australian Bight (Whyalla, SA). Pristine Australian water, sun and wind work in harmony to create the gorgeous Australian sea salt taste loved by all.
Sea Salt for beauty, health and personal hygiene
Altogether it’s believed there are more than 14,000 uses of salt, and our grandmothers were probably familiar with most of them. Many of these uses were for simple things around the home before the advent of modern chemicals and cleaners. However, many uses are still valid today and a lot cheaper and safer than using more sophisticated products. We thought you might like to share some of these fascinating applications of salt but we make no guarantee about the results if you try any of them.
The most familiar use of salt undoubtedly is in the kitchen and on the dining table. Salt accents the flavor of meat, brings out individuality of vegetables, and deepens the flavour of delicate desserts. No other seasoning has yet been found that can satisfactorily take the place of salt.
Salt has many other uses around the home. Salt is an excellent cleaning agent, by itself or in combination with other substances. A solution of salt and turpentine restores the whiteness to yellowed enameled bathtubs and toilets. A paste of salt and vinegar cleans tarnished brass or copper. Strong brine poured down the kitchen sink prevents grease from collecting and eliminates odors.
A container of salt is an important item in many bathrooms. In mild solutions, it makes an excellent mouthwash, throat gargle or eyewash; it is an effective toothpaste, a good antiseptic; and it can be extremely helpful as a massage element to improve complexion.
