My Favorite Things Today

On this first day of September, Saturday, all sorts of goodies have been coming in that caught my eye as My Favorite Things Today.



 

 

Italian Sea Salt & Champagne Truffles

Just In, Italian sea salt from Jacobsen Salt Co. and champagne truffles from Louis Sherry. This is very much the case where the contents inside both are as stellar as the sublime packaging. Both companies known for their quality inside and out. Seriously, when would you think of giving salt as a gift? This just screams of gift giving to me, and the truffle tin–wow, wow, wow. What a keepsake long after the chocolates have been enjoyed.



 

 

Salted Butter

Salt and butter can be a match made in the culinary heavens. This corn on the cob season, I like to take a pat of unsalted butter and douse it with really good chunky salt, like French fleur de sel, English Maldon or US Jacobsen. That way you can control how salty you get your butter. Plus I love how it looks on the table in a little dish. Easy for guests to pass around. Also enjoyable next time you serve a baguette with your meal. Put a good sized piece of butter with chunks of salt atop next to it–I promise it will be gone once it makes its way around the table.



 

 

Jacobsen Pure Kosher Sea Salt

20150529-030940.jpg Very excited to see these arrived while we were in New York. We are huge fans of Netarts Bay, Oregon based Jacobsen Salt Co. at Watson Kennedy. Their flake finishing salt has become a classic. Now, with the addition of this pure Kosher sea salt, they will now take up 2 spots on our kitchen shelves. Hand-harvested from the cold waters off the Oregon Coast. Sure to become a staple. Using the best salt possible really does bring out the most in your cooking. And you know this packaging just made me swoon. Cool enough to leave out on open shelving. They always just get it right, inside and out.



 

 

Jacobsen Salt Co. Sea Salt Soap

20140325-065051.jpg I had to run into the shop yesterday for a quick errand and I was so happy to see that the new sea salt soap from Jacobsen Salt Co. on the Oregon coast had arrived. When they sent me images of the bars a few weeks ago I jumped at the chance to carry them. This is an unscented bar that has their salt mixed in, creating a naturally exfoliating soap. We are big fans of sea salt soap at Watson Kennedy. This one has found a much appreciated home. Plus the graphic & perfectly yellow box make this one sweet little gift all wrapped and ready to give.



 

 

Salty Black Licorice by Jacobsen Salt Co.

20140110-064159.jpg I am so happy to report that our order of Salty Black Licorice by Pacific Northwest superstar Jacobsen Salt Co. has arrived. I first read about this licorice months ago, and have been counting the days until it arrived. Black licorice seems to be one of those things folks either really like or either don’t really like at all. I fall into the really like camp, inheriting this love from my Dad who adored black licorice. But this has a bit of a twist. They include their famous flaked sea salt in it, taking the flavor quotient up several notches. This stuff is good! I could not wait to break into a box the moment it arrived yesterday. I posted it immediately on Instagram and within minutes my friend Rita Konig, who is back living in London, responded with a query about it. The love of salty licorice runs deep for fans that crave it. There are 24 individually wrapped pieces in a box. Plenty to share, but plenty to enjoy just for yourself.
