Red Alaea Hawiian Sea Salt

One of the most flavorful sea salts you'll ever taste! Not only does it add an iron earth flavor the color is beautiful. At the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel they serve butter with Red Alaea salt on top! It looks perfect!

Red Alaea clay has been familiar in Hawaiian cuisine since before the coming of the Europeans, and it was known to be laden with healthful benefits. It's the iron oxide in the famous Hawaiian Alaea clay that makes this salt red, actually more of a burnt sienna color, and it is known to exist only in the islands of the 50th state.

During heavy rains in ancient Hawaii, sediment containing the red volcanic clay called Alaea was washed to the sea. When this red water became trapped in tidal pools, evaporation created a red-tinted sea salt that local inhabitants collected. While much of the salt was used by in sacred rituals, it was also used to preserve food.

Suggested Uses
Today, the salt is used in traditional dishes like Kalua Pork ( recipe ), and by discerning restaurant and home chefs who appreciate this salt's unique history, taste and appearance. This coarse crystal salt adds depth and complexity to savory dishes with its earthiness. Wonderful on grilled meats and vegetables, and also in thick winter stews.
