Salfiore di Romagna al Sale Dei Papi (Pope's Salt) from the Salts of the Earth Collection by Merchant Spice Co.


Shipping to United States: $4.25

Salt production in Cervia, a small town in Emilia-Romagna on the Adriatic Coast, dates back more than 2,000 years. Cervia sea salt is known for its absence of bitter minerals, so it is naturally more “dolce,” or sweet, than other sea salts.

Salfiore di Romagna is the first salt deposited in the flats in Cervia ~ the last remaining artisanal, seasonal salt flats in Italy. Salfiore di Romagna is often referred to as "Il Sale dei Papi" or "Pope's Salt," as it is traditionally the seasoning sent to the Papal table. In early modern history, salt production belonged to the Bishop of Cervia and was taxed heavily.

Today, this medium-fine grain sea salt makes an excellent seasoning for all your gourmet dishes, from vegetables to roasted meats to even gelato.

Packaged in a stand-up, resealable bag for your convenience.

Available in a 1-ounce sampler size, 2 ounces, 4 ounces or 8 ounces (1/2 pound).

Enjoy the Spice of Life!
