The folks at Amagansett Sea Salt Company want you to know you’re wrong about salt. Think it’s supposed to be uniform in color, texture, and shape? They beg to differ. They say the best salt is kind of a mess — irregularly shaped, filled with natural moisture, color and, of course, a wide variety of flavors and tastes. Just see if you don’t agree after watching Food Curated’s video profile — looks pretty great to us!

The husband and wife team behind Amagansett Sea Salt Co. in Long Island, NY took “a leap of faith” when they turned a sea salt hobby into a business in 2009. New York State’s only sea salt makers, they use all natural Atlantic Ocean sea water from the beaches near their home and blend the resulting salt with herbs and spices to create unique blends.
