From Karen Mordechai of Sunday Suppers, the culinary line of Ila is refined and flavorful. The Sonoma Sea Salt is naturally harvested by solar evaporation from the clean waters of the Pacific Ocean. The ritual of its harvest dates back to the earliest inhabitants of the area, the Kashaya, which when translated means ‘the people from the top of the land’, who descended to the Pacific coastline each summer to gather food—and crucial ingredients—from the sea. Crisp, pure, and mellow in taste, the small crystals are free of additives. 35 oz jar.
