Terre Exotique's fleur de sel with lime zest
Fleur de sel, nectar of the salt marshes
The fleur de sel crystals that make up this blend are more delicate than the crystals of coarse salt. The light and fine texture of Ifaty's fleur de sel allows it to blend better into foods and dissolve more quickly. The fleur de sel from the Malagasy salt pans is the fruit of delicate artisanal work and ideal climatic conditions. It is on the surface of the basins that this thin layer of white crystals forms, during the evaporation of water, under the combined action of the sun and the wind.
Focus on the botany of lime
Originating from Asia, lime is the fruit of the lime tree and is part of the Rutaceae family. This citrus thrives in tropical climates and is now developing in the Mediterranean basin and the West Indies. Despite some similarities and a close name, lemon and lime are two distinct citrus fruits.
A bit of history
The origins of Madagascar's fleur de sel
Madagascar is home to the island of Ifaty, whose salt pans remain free from any pollution. This fleur de sel has always been harvested by the Vezo, an ethnic group that originally lived from fishing. When the island's marine resources gradually diminished, they began to harvest Ifaty's fleur de sel. This harvest requires a lot of delicacy and a know-how that only they possess.
On the trail of lime
The history and origins of lime are quite mysterious. It is believed that the cultivation of lime was probably established in Europe by the Arabs around the 16th century. It was then that it was also introduced into the Caribbean. Today, lime is highly appreciated for its flavor and is a very popular citrus fruit in cuisines around the world.
