Tavira - Flowers of Salt
Flor de sal is the Portuguese fleur de sel, the flower of salt. This salt comes to us from Rui Simeão a producer in the Ria Formosa area. Their flor de sal is collected by hand using special tools that skim the surface of the salt pan to collect the thin layer of salt “flower” that forms on top of the water as the water evaporates.
Flor do sal is prized for its small grains, lightly crunchy texture and balanced, briny flavor. This flor de sal is certified by the French environmental organization Nature et Progres to be free of the industrial contaminants sometimes found in mechanically harvested sea salt.
Produced in Tavira.

Muxama da Real Conserveira
This exceptional Muxama da Real Conserveira is made of dry and salty tuna loins, with a rigid consistency and smooth texture. It is a product made with the same recipe that the Phoenicians and Romans made two thousand years ago using the “best salt in the world”, the one from Castro Marim. The term comes from the Arabic musama, which means “dry”. It results from an ancient way of processing fish, using tuna loins, which are passed through coarse salt and then washed to remove the excess salt. It then consists of salting and then drying the noble parts of the tuna in a controlled environment and temperature. It is said to be a kind of sea cured ham. Produced in Castro Marim.
