Salt has marked the history of mankind since its beginnings, locating the sites of settlements near mines and salt flats, and creating conflicts and wars for control of these. Essential for the biological balance and the preservation of food, salt has been losing value, although its importance continues to be vital. It is the oldest condiment in the world, it sublimates the flavors of food, although it must be used moderately and not exceed 6 gr. per day recommended.
Currently there are many types of salt on the market, in addition to coarse and table. Salts such as maldon, widely used in today's cuisine, smoked salt, celery, garlic or onion, or native salts such as Guerande and Himalayan rose. The diversity of salts is enormous, but when we thought we had already seen it all, Carolingia Sales Preciosas surprises us with two collections of salts that are more innovative: flavored salts and colored salts.
From the rich natural setting of the La Trinidad salt flats, in the Ebro Delta, come the magical Carolingian salts, authentic culinary jewels that will allow us to give a touch of distinction and elegance to our dishes. The colored salts are made from sea salt and allspice. Salts of multiple colors: green, yellow, orange, red, purple, turquoise and the most spectacular, salt with gold and salt with silver.
In their collection of flavors, they also have very surprising combinations: salt with the aroma of caviar, chocolate and vanilla, basil, cinnamon and orange, rose and cinnamon, or mushrooms and pepper among others.
The Carolingian house also offers recipes with which to use these salts, making their chromatic and taste characteristics create a great impact on the dishes. One of their proposals is Provolone cheese with turquoise salt, which consists of sprinkling the salt over the cheese, placing it in a source and baking it for a few minutes, until it begins to melt. It is served with a watercress salad seasoned with the same salt, balsamic vinegar and oil.
