Our "Lobos Salt" is now available on the webstore! Perfect as a rub for tenderloin or beef, in marinades, bbq, and other grilled fare. Strong coffee flavor profile blended nicely with hickory smoked sea salt. Often called the "crown jewel of the State Park System", Point Lobos is the premier hiking destination for locals and visitors from around the world. This coastal natural preserve hosts not only scenic landscapes and views of the ocean, but a variety of activities including hiking, diving and watching wildlife and sea animals. The coffee and mild peppers in the blend represent the exhilaration experienced throughout the Park. #craftsalts #retail
"Above the salt" or "Below the salt" - this comes from medieval times and signified nobility or close family ties (or not). In many circumstances, Kings would sit on a raised platform at the head of the table so they could look down on guests. A saltcellar, made of expensive materials, was placed in the middle of the table. If you were above the salt (closer to the King), you were of nobility and if below the salt, the opposite. In modern times, we hear of seating arrangements where the least important sit furthest away from the host (on their way out, so to speak). The "most important" persons are next to the host, which has always been true, but salt was used back in the day to distinguish where everyone would sit. Who was nobility, etc... was common knowledge, but in moments that required clarification there was a term for it - "above the salt" or "below the salt". #craftsalts #history

Thoughts are heavy with our local family today. As time passes, the events of yesterday have become more and more personal. Not only did a cowardly and selfish act destroy the lives of many I have not met, it has hit our @west_coast_agave group, as well. The @thehoneyladies are in hospital, having been hit. Although he wasn't there, my little roommate comes home this morning, and he's only 3 years old... I can't even imagine... It just tears me up. This is going to get more difficult before it gets any easier. We need strength, we need community, we need family, and we need focus moving forward. Our hearts go out to everyone in the #gilroygarlicfestival community, and to those that lost loved ones in the 6 other mass shootings across America over the weekend.
