What is the best way to store fleur de sel?
I usually store it in a wide-mouth mason jar, but I've been using it so often at the table that I'd like to store it in something that makes it more easily accessible. I'm afraid that leaving it in a lidless salt cellar / salt pig with reduce its prized high moisture content. Thoughts? I've seen corked jars with attached spoons that look cute and handy (see photo), but I'm not sure how tightly the cork will seal.

As would whatever works for you in terms of space and/or esthetics.
Not sure there is a best.
Sometimes I use the smallest available version of a canning jar (American, Italian or German make - whatever you can get or prefer), and leave it, covered, on the table. Then the salt is protected most of the time from moisture or picking up odors & easy to use.
Also, I've never had the salt dry out, but it tastes so good that even a slightly drier than normal fleur-de-sel is miles better than a run of the mill factory salt.
In my home, the salt cellar on the table is a small oyster shell; it holds less than a tablespoon. The salt in this cellar is usually pretty fresh as I frequently grab it for kitchen use.
