Posts Tagged ‘black salt crystals’

My friend Moo is always sending us interesting things in the mail.

This was his latest discovery – Swedish black salt flakes.  The huge crystals of sea salt are coloured with vegetable carbon, and shine like black onyx…

I indulged five grams of crushed crystals into yesterday’s batch of sourdough ciabatta – mixing some in with the dough itself and sprinkling the remainder on the top of the loaves prior to baking…

The finished loaves don’t really taste all that different (perhaps marginally a little saltier from the topping), but they are visually appealing…

A little of the black colour remained in the dough, giving a slight marbled effect to the crumb…

As always, it’s enormous fun to play with new ingredients! Thanks Moo!
