From the maker:
We incorporated San Pablo worms that were harvested from wild plants in the Central Valley of Oaxaca with our hand-harvested, pure sea salt. The worms are collected individually, fed with fruit, then toasted on the comal before being lightly salted. Highly concentrated in flavor, the worms add a delicate umami. For some mild heat, we also infused the salt with dried Pasilla Mixe chiles, a smoked Oaxacan delicacy.
Founded in 2011, Jacobsen Salt Co. was the first company to harvest salt in the Pacific Northwest since Lewis & Clark built their salt works in 1805. Since then it has transformed from a local, small business to a nationally recognized brand as America’s leading salt maker. Harvested from the cold, pristine waters of Netarts Bay on the Oregon Coast, our flake and kosher sea salts have garnered worldwide favor for their beautiful presentation and pure taste by professional chefs and home cooks alike.
