Zeeuwsche Zoute Samphire is perfect for flavor combinations in which a delicious, salty taste is desired, combined with the saltiness that the salt-loving vegetable Samphire can give. The salt was made possible in part by the supplier Zeeuws Zilt, which grows samphire on salt marshes in Zeeland: the transition area between land and sea. This new seasoning is the ideal partner for sauces with fish dishes or a salad with fennel. But this salty addition also comes into its own with steak tartare, carpaccio, egg dish cod and other white fish.
From water to salt crystal
We use a combination of 500 years of Zeeland craftsmanship and modern technical solutions to make our salt. All these elements contribute to the craft of our work: creating an extraordinarily authentic salt product that enriches our daily life and offers a new taste sensation every time.
Where Zeeuwsche Zout finds its origin
On the banks of the Dutch Oosterschelde, we pump up the seawater with the incoming tide at the fishing village of Bruinisse on the island of Schouwen-Duiveland. The Oosterschelde National Park is the largest national park in the Netherlands. Purified by sandbars, oyster and mussel beds, this is one of the best places to obtain clear and clean water from the Oosterschelde. Did you know that an oyster purifies an average of 5 liters of water per hour? Mussels go the extra mile and purify no less than 10 liters of water per hour.
