The Sitka Spruce tree is native to the Coastal Rainforest of the Northwest. For generations the tips have been used as a natural ingredient in syrup, jam, beer, and now sea salt. Alaska Pure Sea Salt’s Sitka Spruce Tip Flake Sea Salt is made by infusing the hand picked, bright green spring Spruce tips into light salt flakes. Nothing else is added. With a distinct citrus and herbal flavor, it pairs well with seafood, chicken, pork, beef, vegetables, and even popcorn.
