Salty Caramel (2 Bags)
+ $ shipping surcharge
The granddaddy of all salted caramels.
Our love of sea salt caramel runs deep, as we believe all things sweet are better with a sprinkling of salt. Ever since Jacobsen Salt Co. set about harvesting the first great American salt (straight from Oregon's cold waters using traditional methods), they've been daydreaming about crafting a caramel to highlight it.
Their flake salt has a bright flavor and a delicate crunch, making it the ultimate pairing with this rich, buttery caramel. They keep things simple: slowly toasting sugar with local butter until it’s melted and golden before stirring in heavy cream and generous amounts of flaky sea salt.
The result is a perfectly burnished caramel, both soft and toothsome, with sparks of salt throughout. Happy snacking!

Meet the Maker
Hauling buckets of briny water from the Oregon coast started out as a hobby for Ben Jacobsen, the man behind hand-harvested Jacobsen salt. Since then, he's jolted awake an industry that has been in a century-deep sleep in the United States. Any artisan worth his salt has big dreams, and Ben is no exception -- as he produces, he perfects. We’re happy to help taste test along the way.View Full Profile
