Grenadine Wild Sea Salt a taste of perfection By Liza Stewart

Out of the pristine and azure Caribbean water, something delightfully natural and ‘truly wild’ has recently emerged. Grenadine Sea Salt is one sea salt that may soon be recognized as the world’s finest tasting gourmet sea salt, and by lab tests, it remarkably may be the very healthiest too, containing even more trace elements and minerals than the leading brands. Jerry Simpson, who’s enjoyed a lifelong love affair with all things seaworthy to food-worthy, from sailing and crafting his own surfboards, to his renowned career as a commercial film food director, honed his passion and ingenuity by creating Grenadine Sea Salt. Simpson’s mantra: “You’ve got to sprinkle the love.” Situated on a lush plantation, brilliantly large salt crystals mesmerize the eyes as they bask in abundant sunlight via a solar harvesting and contaminant-free proprietary production technique. “It’s a finishing salt,” Simpson says. “You can use just a little to powerfully and evocatively enhance and enliven flavour on any plate, in any glass, or enjoy more in a decadent salt massage.” Realizing his quintessential product, the “Original

Wild One”, might not be enough to illicit a highly competitive gourmet market’s attention, Simpson set about expanding his brand. The result? Five wholly organic sea salt blends, each named for a Grenadine island and celebrating indigenous ingredients. ‘St. Vincent’ is a fusion of healthy turmeric and zesty chili pepper, ‘Bequia’ features tropical toasty coconut, ‘Mustique’ pairs succulent mango with lime, ‘Canouan’ blends rich cinnamon with sweet nutmeg, and there’s ‘Mayreau’, a tantalizingly sensuous dark rum sea salt. Simpson shares simple and luxurious foodie tips, like drizzling fresh sashimi with extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of ‘Mayreau’, salt factoids, and his curated evaporation methods amidst mixologist drink specials and hors d’oeuvre samplings at the Firefly Hotel Bequia. What’s now floating the proverbial boat of professional chefs and home cooks alike? The answer is simply Grenadine Sea Salt. Find out more and make an order at grenadineseasalt.com
