August's Featured Salt
(some like it hot!)
Hot Habanero Blend
Our salt of the month for August is the perfect accompainment to the steamy flavors of summer. Hot Habanero Blend is inspired by the vibrant tastes and colors of Mexican cuisine.
This blend balances the heat of several types of chili peppers with Hawaiian Black Lava and Red Alaea salts. Each of the dried chili peppers used in this blend is skillfully chopped by hand in a precise manner to ensure uniform size and preserve each dried chili’s supple texture. The organic cilantro and carrot that we used to integrate the flavors are also hand chopped by our chef to guarantee their compelling texture.
Try this spicy blend on crab cakes, chicken tacos, or on a southwestern-style salad. (For more ideas and background on this salt, check out our website.)

Premium Gourmet Salt –
Now in Sample Sizes!
(so you can try a little bit of everything!)
With so many stupendously yummy salts to choose from, we understand how difficult it must be to determine which naturally unrefined salt or gourmet salt blend is right for you. Sure you could purchase a jar of each of our 23 varieties of salts (and we certainly wouldn’t stop you), but we wanted to offer an alternative option for those of you that do not have the kitchen space for all those jars (putting aside how impressive they all look stacked up together).
We are pleased to announce that we now offer each of our salts in an ultra-convienant "sample size." This is an ideal portion to provide you a taste of the vast salty goodness available from Beyond the Shaker, and each sample is packaged in a handy re-sealable pouch (perfect for use in your home kitchen or to smuggle into a restaurant while dining out). To make your descision even easier, each Beyond the Shaker sample-sized salt is the same price regardless of which salts or blends you purchase. And because we are confident that once you try our premium gourmet salts you willl be hooked on their flavor, shipping on orders of samples is free (regardless of how many you order). What a deal!
So no matter what salt you buy, you really can’t go wrong! Enjoy!
