    Default Hawaiian salt

    I was looking around to find something more interesting than the Hawaiian salt my wife buys at the grocery store, and I found some promotional materials, referred to below. I wonder if anyone has any opinions about Hawaiian salt to share.

    "Guide" from The Meadow salt retailer:

    The place above markets (under different, evocative names) Hawaiian salt from a Molokai based company Hawaii Kai:

    If you want to pick up some special Hawaii sea salt varieties, and get some advice from an award-winning chef (and his brother) on how to use them, check out Padovani's Chocolates in Dole Cannery. They've got some jet black stuff from Molokai that's pretty amazing.

    That's very useful; Dole Cannery would be quite a drive for me, but Foodland's web site says they carry it, $9.50 for an 8oz(?) bag of blush, black, or red:

    And Pacifica Hawaii, which makes it, refers to Nancy Gove, the same person who the place I referred to, Hawaii Kai, says developed the process used to extract it:

    Nancy Gove also sells from her web site:

    Here in AZ, I just make my own. I always experiment. I just buy plain old white Hawaiian salt and add stuff to it. I make two or three different kinds of salt combos for grilling and smoking. I put stuff like garlic powder, pepper, cayenne powder, chili powder, onion powder, celery seed, etc. etc. for different purposes. And I have a red, iron-laden rock which I scrape to make red Hawaiian salt. I also use ground mesquite charcoal that is essentially the same as kiawe charcoal. Over the years, my experimentation has told me what tastes good with what.
