Jacobsen hand-harvested sea salt

Ben Jacobsen recently started the Jacobsen Salt Company where he makes bespoke, hand-harvested, pure, local sea salt just outside Portland, OR, using water from the nearby Netarts Bay. The beautiful salt he produces is bright, flaky, airy and tastes like the ocean and nothing more – which is the very reason it’s been snatched up by restaurants and foodies all over the Pacific Northwest (that and the fact that it’s the only salt harvested locally in that area – making it über chic with the Portland area locavore set). And, fortunately for us, it’s also the reason we just received it as a lovely early b-day gift from our dear transplanted Portlandian, gastronome friend – thank you, once again, lovely JJ, for giving us delicious treats whist making us look cool and in the know!

    I think we need to try it with some french breakfast radishes and farmhouse butter! Nothing more nothing less (unless you want to have champers too, that is). xo

    • We could not agree more – the perfect recipe for the ultimate salty treat – let’s make a date for this snack immediately! xo
