This Red Gum Smoked Salt is produced by renowned Australian saltmakers Olsson's, in collaboration with Pialligo Estate Smokehouse in Canberra. Salt flakes are smoked over Australian Red Gum wood for 72 hours.
Smoked salt has been a popular Scandinavian seasoning for centuries, dating back to the time of Vikings who infused sea salt with smoke from native wood fires. The Olsson family has continued this proud Nordic tradition by smoking their Australian sea salt flakes, from South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, over native river red gum (eucalyptus camaldulensis) for 72 hours in the traditional northern European style at Pialligo Estate Smokehouse, Canberra. The smoking results in a unique salt enhanced with the aromatic and complex characteristics of the Australian red gum wood. The Ollson Family has been making solar sea salt since the 1950s and is the oldest family owned and operated sea salt maker in Australia.
There are no chemical processes involved in the manufacture of the product.
