New Year, New Packaging

Happy New Year, friends!

I know I've been a bit MIA lately-- it's because good things are happening. :)

Here is our new packaging for the one ounce and one pound bottles/jars. Eventually, this will be up on Etsy, in the mean time, please keep the email orders coming, it is the best way to get in contact with us directly.

The last few weeks have been pretty cold in New York, but the chilly weather has not slowed down our harvest or production schedule.

Thank you for all of your support this year. We incorporated in March and it's been quite the ride. Cheers to 2014 and what lies ahead.

Autumn in New York

Autumn is my favorite season in New York City and out east in Westhampton Beach. Warm days and chilly nights, leaves changing colors, pumpkin picking on the North Fork, and outerwear!

It is also the best season to harvest water for salt making! People often say I am crazy for going in the water during chilly weather, but the water is usually warmer than the air! This results in super clean and fast batches of salt to be made. Hence making it the best season ever :)

(*Note: I do not usually fetch water in a skirt- usually a bathing suit or rain boots!)

A very belated shout out to one of my early supporters: Kenzie Smith from Grilled Cheese Social!

Not one, but TWO Valentine's Days ago, she kindly included my salt in one of her outrageous recipes. I visit her website daily: http://www.grilledcheesesocial.com

Follow her on instagram for some serious #foodporn @grilledcheesesocial


Thank you, Kenzie! <3

Spring Harvesting

I love spring time on the east end of Long Island. The best part is that the icy bite in the wind disappears, which makes walks on the beach much easier. Unfortunately, the water is still freezing, but that hasn't stopped us from grabbing buckets of water and making fresh salt. One of my favorite parts of the weekend is going down to the beach with my family. We spend a few hours flying kites, searching for beach glass, jumping off of the dunes, and my nephews (no matter what the temperature is) charge into the water. At the end of the session, I fill up my buckets, we head back to the house, and settle in for a big Sunday meal. Perfection.
