These delicious apricot-colour Australian gourmet natural salt flakes are in restaurants around the world...while reducing inland salinity! Biome has stocked Murray River salt since 2004 when we discovered this project tackling the inland salinity problem. Natural crystallisation means the salt dissolves quickly on the tongue, enhancing its flavour. Ideal for DIY skin care recipes also. 250g

These salt flakes are being praised by foodies because of their flavour, colour and texture.

250g weight. Packaged in a sealed plastic bag inside a cardboard carton (11cm x 10cm x 10cm).

This salt is produced naturally from the underground brines in the Murray Darling Basin. The salt does not contain any of the artificial additives or chemicals often used in refined table salt. Murray River salt flakes retain the naturally occurring minerals and trace-elements, such as magnesium and calcium, also lost in industrial processing.

Use this salt as you would normally use salt and experience the taste difference. Use as a flavoursome ingredient in your cooking, as a garnish, or serve in a small finger bowl for sprinkling over food. Delicious with rocket and lemon salad, fish, potatoes, tomatoes, eggs and salt-crusted foccacia.

The quality and delicious, light flavour of this salt is equal to salt flakes produced in other parts of the world. The natural crystallisation also means the salt dissolves quickly on the tongue, enhancing its flavour.

The pinkish-apricot colour occurs for the same reason that pink flamingoes are pink (from the minerals in the water)!

Use these salt flakes in any of our DIY body care recipes that call for salt such as salt body scrubs.

RECIPE IDEA: LUSCIOUS SEMI-DRIED TOMATOES

by Sheridan Rogers

Reprinted with permission from the website of Sheridan Rogers (who is one of Australia’s leading food writers and stylists) found at http://www.sheridanrogers.com/postcards.html

You'll need ripe red plum tomatoes, washed, dried and cut in half lengthwise.

Scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon, leaving the central membrane in position, and place cut side up on cake racks over a baking tray. Sprinkle with flaky salt and some thyme leaves. Insert a few peeled garlic cloves in between the tomatoes. Place the trays in a convection oven set at the lowest temperature (50 degrees Celsius) - it needs to be low enough to enable you to put your hand in without burning - and leave to dry for 10 - 12 hours.

The time will vary depending on your oven and the juiciness of the tomatoes. If your oven is too warm they will cook rather than dry. The first batch will require experimentation - some may require more time. They should be dry and fleshy but not leathery. Remove from the oven and cool, then place in sterilised jars with a branch of thyme and a few peppercorns. Cover with olive oil and seal.

Store in the refrigerator. Toss through pasta dishes with goat's cheese, slivered black olives and torn basil or serve on bruschetta.

Australian made

Love this salt! It's Australian made whereas Himalayan salt is not always ethical as the workers don't get paid well under harsh conditions, so thank you for stocking this ????????????

What's Wrong With Aussie Salt?

This is from a river, that has pollution, where as Himalayan Rock Salt for example, is from deep underground and very old.
Many of these other comments here look very fake, because who is an expert on how salt tastes? It is what is in the salt that counts.
Skin care or to put of food? When I put it on food it tastes fine, yet as I live in this part of Australia, I wonder what else was near by, in this part of the river.
