Although it may seem odd to someone unaccustomed with the practice, adding salt to watermelon is a simple way to bring out more of the delicious fruit's natural flavors. Similar to the tasty pairing of salt and cucumber in baked cucumber chips, the high volume of water in watermelon is very receptive to salt. Believe it or not, adding salt to watermelon (and other fruit) helps bring out the sweetness of the flavor.
At the height of its season, watermelons seem overabundant across farmer's markets and produce aisles in Upstate New York. The next time you're slicing up a sweet watermelon, be sure to grab "just a pinch" of our sea salt blends to top the ruby fruit! We recommend our Just A Pinch Simply Sea Salt and Just A Pinch Zesty Sea Salt, but feel free to try any of our blends and see what you like!
