As Pythagoras said, "salt was born from two of the cleanest parents - sun and sea." And in Portugal, this rule is doubled. Portuguese salt is whiter than French because of climatic conditions. The Portuguese Algarve region is less rainy, with more fired sun than other French regions do. The Portuguese "Sal da Terra" is a high quality salt flavored with herbs and other natural ingredients, which is great as a spice for fish, eggs, pasta, meat and more.
