The Piran Salt Pans are among those rare salt pans in the world where salt is produced using centuries-old processes, involving entirely natural crystallisation, working by hand and employing tools and procedures used by our ancestors.
Tiny, white to pink pyramid-shaped crystals – these are the most precious harvest from the Piran Salt Pans. They form on the surface of the brine only when the air is still, for the slightest ripple disturbs them. At harvest time the saltmakers use a special webbed spatula to remove them gently from the surface of the saltfields, where they form in a thin layer. Fleur de Sel enhances salads, carpaccios, seafood specialities and other culinary masterpieces that are seasoned after serving. The quality of Piran FLEUR DE SEL exceeds even the prized French Fleur de Sel variety.
