Salt: Fleur De Sel French Salt
Fleur De Sel French Salt
Fleur de sel is a seawater salt that floats to the surface during the evaporation process.
Sel gris and fluer de sel are both harvested from the same salt pans, but the fluer de sel is raked off the top, whereas sel gris is allowed to, and often does, come in contact with the bottom of the pan.

"Fleur de sel" comes from the French "flower of salt," due to its flower-like crystal pattern.
