Salt affects flavor in curious ways, thanks to the tricky flavor receptors in our brain. It subdues some flavors, and enhances others. Paired with the right cacao, salt can be another tool for manipulating the flavor of the chocolate we create!
French Board Chocolate's friends at Bulls Bay Saltworks collect water from Bulls Bay, SC, in the protected Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, home to one of the healthiest saltwater ecosystems on the east coast. This pristine site produces a unique salt with natural purity and a distinctive flavor.
This chocolate contains seventy five percent cacao and is sprinkled with flake salt. The salt brings out the jammy fruit notes in the profile, which combine with the flavor of peanut butter.
