WAJD Coarse Sea Salt $16.95

Wajd was born out of a local effort to preserve Anfeh’s traditional salt harvesting industry and practices.

The town is home to some of the oldest salt pans in the Mediterranean, and locals to this day use the same centuries-old methods: sea salt is evaporated under the sun, hand-harvested using wooden tools and broken into smaller crystals to produce pure, clean salt. That’s it. Now, however, private developers are converting the Lebanese coast to commercial resorts, and the government has lifted tariffs on imported salt so traditional producers are having a difficult time competing. We love that Wajd still offers this natural sea salt since it also preserves the local Lebanese heritage.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


Try this salt for a burst of flavor on roasted meats or starchy vegetables such as our Salt-Crusted Potatoes. You can also crush a few salt crystals and sprinkle over dishes as a finishing salt; we like its clean brightness to enhance fresh herbs, or to complement rich pan sauces. On the sweet side, the coarse texture of Wajd Organic Sea Salt makes a fantastic finishing sprinkle for cookies or pastries-- either alone or mixed with coarse sugar-- for a lovely crunch and pop of balancing salinity.
