Recognizing the Fleur de Sel
Due its origin, fleur de sel have unique qualities and characteristics that make it very easy to distinguish from common salt. The grains of fleur de sel are crisp and irregular sizes, but generally range from two to four millimeters. Because is naturally dryed and don't have chemical adittives to avoid the compactation, this kind of salt does not get wet. Therefore, the grain of fleur de sel is easily sprayed on the fingers, and mix well in liquids. Its flavor is more delicate, and does not have the bitter aftertaste that leaves the salt. Therefore, wet salt with much coarser grains are not fleur de sel, though so some manufacturers try to sell it. Sometimes, the common salt is passed through a sifter, but the grains of this kake fleur de sel are much harder and becomes moistened easily.
