SHED Black Lime Salt
A blend of Black Limes and Jacobsen Salt.
Chef's Notes: SHED’s blends use Jacobsen Salt as a base and add flavors to create finishing salts you’ll always want to reach for. Normally not one to play favorites, Perry confesses that his favorite of the new line is the Black Lime Salt, which has a distinctly Californian take on a traditional Middle Eastern flavor profile. Limes are salted and soaked before being dried and pulverized, bringing an intensity to this salt.
“The wonderful aromatic flavors of lime are very dominant, so this becomes a umami flavor enhancer,” Perry says. He suggests pairing the Black Lime Salt with the Shitake Powder for a umami powerhouse. “If you were to add those two to your broth, it would be very full-bodied.”
