JACOBSEN SALT CO. is led by PNW native and proprietor Ben Jacobsen, who developed his deep appreciation for fine sea salts during his sojourn in Norway and Copenhagen. Jacobsen strives to create the best finishing salt America has to offer. Hand-harvested from the cold waters of the Oregon Coast (the only hand-harvested salt in the Pacific Northwest), Jacobsen Salt Co.’s finishing Salt has gained much critical acclaim for the beautiful taste, texture, and appearance of their salt, used by both renown chefs and very intelligent home cooks.
The Pure Sea Salt Cocktail Salt, a natural 'secret ingredient' for cocktails, has a bright, pure salinity that brings out all the other flavors in your favorite drinks. The pure salt gets its unique character from the water of pristine Netarts Bay, on the rugged Oregon coastline. Using custom methods perfected by company founder Ben Jacobsen, the water is slowly evaporated until it naturally forms light, delicate salt crystals, which are hand harvested and dried. For a craft-cocktail finishing touch, use the salt flakes as an ingredient or garnish for everything from margaritas to mojitos and daiquiris.

Morgan transforms more than 100 favorite comfort foods into gluten-free delights, including jelly donuts, chicken and dumplings, red velvet cupcakes, challah, and more. These treats boast the same taste, texture, and appearance as their gluten-based inspiration, and some—like the lemon-raspberry pop tart—are even better than the original. Packed with more than 100 photographs, The Everyday Art of Gluten-Free empowers its readers to make virtually any recipe into a delicious, gluten-free version.
