Brief History of Guerande Salt
Items for Sale Top
The Sel de Guerande marsh is located at Bretagne, on the West Coast of France.
Sel de Guerande is produced by "paludier," who use hardly any mechanical power, with a traditional method of draining and drying the salt by sun and wind on a clayey stratum. The method has been handed down from the 9th century.
This sea salt, hand-harvested in a natural environment, has been highly valued by famous chefs in France from Bourbon Dynasty to the present day.
