LA VIE RUSTIC Sel de Figues
There’s something about the ability of figs to go both sweet and savory – think fresh figs stuffed with jambon cru (French style-prosciutto) or a fresh fig and arugula salad with feta cheese and honey –that makes this fig and sea salt combination a handy pantry item. Use it as a rub or to season duck, wild game, or pork. Instead of regular salt use Sel de Figue in making vinaigrette. Sprinkle a smidgen of it over freshly baked brownies or chocolate ice cream. Stuff a pork loin with figs and season the roast with Sel de Figue. The uses are many.
The salt is from the ancient salt ponds of Guérande in Brittany, France and the figs, the incredibly sweet Sultan de Marabout, are from my mother tree. For more about Sultan de Marabout, visit le verger – in the kitchen orchard on this site.
