Spices: Black Mineral Salt


2.5 oz jar

Use this Black Mineral Salt instead of table salt in any dish to add depth and complexity. Kala namak literally means "black salt" in Hindi, and it has a long history in Ayurveda. The salt's journey starts when it's mined from the nearby mountains in Uttar Pradesh, a state in northern India that shares a border with Nepal. From there, the mineral salt is placed into kilns alongside harad seeds, amla and babul bark and heated for 24 hours until the whole mixture melts, producing jagged black salt crystals that are ground into a powder.

Description: Black Mineral Salt (commonly called kala namak) is a classic ingredient in many South Asian dishes and is used in the practice of Ayurveda. The salt is mined in the Himalayas and then fired in a kiln at extremely high temperatures, hot enough to melt the salt and give it a scorched black color. The heat also changes the chemical composition, bringing out its beloved (and infamous) savory, tart and eggy aroma and flavor.

Use instead of table salt in any dish to add depth and complexity.

Burlap & Barrel

Burlap & Barrel is building new international spice supply chains that are equitable, transparent and traceable. We connect­ smallholder spice farmers to high-value markets, we educate consumers about the impact of product traceability on human rights, and we emphasize unique products with terroir that are grown biodynamically using traditional techniques. We work to end inequality and exploitation in food systems that disenfranchise skilled, serious artisans along the entire chain. Mainstream conversations around food sustainability rarely consider the people involved in growing, harvesting, transporting, processing and cooking food. Sustainability is discussed in terms of environmental impact, or the comfort of livestock providing meat, dairy or eggs. We believe that the standard measures of sustainability must evolve to consider the conditions in which the farmers who drive global food supply chains earn their livelihoods. Single origin ingredients draw attention to the unique environments in which incredible ingredients grow and to the farmers with the expertise and commitment to grow them well.
