Hiwa Kai Black Hawaiian-Style Sea Salt is an exotic, all-natural sea salt made with activated charcoal from the shells of Hawaiian coconuts and pure, clean sea salt from the Pacific Ocean. Rich in salinity and jet-black in color, the crunchy grains are a dramatic and sultry way to finish a variety of dishes in any type of cuisine. Hiwa Kai can replace your everyday table salt or dress up a family-sized roast with its shiny black grains. Beautiful and delicious in snack mixes, roasted nuts, BBQ sauces and rubs, Hiwa Kai is a versatile artisanal salt that belongs in every kitchen.

Small Grain: Robust and dramatic, Small grain Hiwa Kai is as tasty as it is attractive. Slightly larger than Fine grain, the coarse crystals are an artful way to rim a cocktail and bring added color and texture to grilled meats.

Please note: the actual grain size of this salt is the same (1-2mm), but the name has been changed from "Coarse" to "Small" to more accurately represent the size of the crystals. The packaging you receive may reflect either name during the transition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This salt is yummy! This is the first time that I've used the small grain Hiwa Kai Black Hawaiian-Style sea salt, and I am loving it. I have used the coarse grain before and love that, too! The comments around the table were "this is really good!" and "it somehow tastes saltier than salt, in a good way." I have been using this small grain in my every day cooking, mixed 3:1 with kosher salt. It's been working out deliciously.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rich, black color Very dark black salt that doesn't lose it's color once mixed in to any dish. I top my gourmet toffee with this one & it's gorgeous! I don't taste any distinctive flavor to this one but black sea salts always look different than others so it's something fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous flavor Hiwa Kai Black Hawaiian-Style Sea This salt adds a unique flavor to my foods. I can change up the flavor and people wonder what I have done or if it is a different recipe. I have 3 different flavors of sea salt from Saltworks and I will keep them among my seasonings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Salt for Cooking and Bath This is THE salt to have for soups. The dark quality makes all the soup ingredients pop. Flavor is amazing. It is also great for bathing salt scrubs (finer grinds) with the addition of some coconut oil and a little fragrance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Finishing Salt I brought this about two weeks ago and my customers love. It has a suttle unique taste that can go with anything. You’ll never see any black trace when you use this salt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice black color & consistency This is a nice grade of black salt but dispense or transfer from container to container on a covered counter top or easily cleanable surface.
