Chances are you probably haven’t heard of salt pearls before, unless you happen to be a fan of cooking shows like Chopped.
Salt pearls are considered a gourmet salt product. They are often used as a finishing salt, but they can be incorporated into a dish while cooking. The salt can be grated on top of a dish.
You can also get petite salt pearls that are suitable to be placed into a salt mill and used that way.
Some types of salt pearls can even be crushed between fingers and can be a fun way to finish a dish at the table when serving food to guests.
Salt pearls can be purchased in gourmet cooking and grocery stores, as well as in numerous online stores.
