Inca Sun Salt
The Inca Sun Salt comes from the highlands of the Peruvian Andes (also called Andean salt). It continues to be harvested in the same traditional way, that the Incas used over 500 years ago. A powerful saltwater spring near Machu Picchu floods over 1500 terraced 10 cm deep basins.
The pools are then dammed and the sun does the rest of the work, evaporating the water and leaving a concentrated crust of Sun Salt in the basin. After a few weeks the salt is concentrated enough so that harvesting can take place. This Inca salt is a fine delicacy of a salt, similar to a Fleur de Sel (that is also sun-dried).
Particularly noteworthy is the high purity of the spring water, which fills the pools. As the spring is over 3000 meters above Sea level, and far from any industry, we are able to enjoy a particularly pure salt with a fascinating history. Inca Sun Salt is suitable for classic home cooking.
