What could be more warming than a humble slice of apple crumble?

This recipe is made by @mushypeaz, where a generous glug of Graza “Sizzle” Extra Virgin Olive Oil is used to incorporate the dry ingredients and create that crumble-like texture that we all know and love. Plus, a good EVOO like “Sizzle” adds a wonderful, nuanced flavour to the baked dish, keeping the ‘crumb’ deliciously moist and not dry.

For a little extra crunch and flavour, add a pinch of Maldon Salt. The sea salt flakes gives balance to the dish, elevating the sweetness and counteracting the bitter tones.

When looking for a final topping, add a swirl of Graza “Drizzle” Extra Virgin Olive Oil to your ice cream scope. The EVOO not only allows the ice cream to hold a perfect silky and smooth texture, but also adds depth to the dish, creating a complex flavour profile.

Here is how to make the Olive Oil Apple Crumble…

  1. Peel 1½ pound apples and slice thinly.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  3. In a large bowl, mix apples, ¼ cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp flour, 1 tsp vanilla extract, a pinch of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt until well combined.
  4. Add the apple mix to a 2 quart baking dish.
  5. To make the crumble, thoroughly mix 1¼ cup flour, ⅔ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup pecans or walnuts, 1¼ tsp baking powder, and 1 tsp kosher salt in a medium bowl.
  6. Squeeze in ½ cup of Sizzle and mix gently until dry ingredients are just incorporated. Make sure not to over-mix to maintain big clumps of crumble!
  7. Evenly distribute crumble mixture over apples and dust with a tbsp or so of granulated or turbinado sugar.
  8. Bake for 50-60 minutes until crumble is golden brown and filling is bubbling. Let cool before serving if you can!
  9. Enjoy à la mode with a scoop of ice cream, a big swirl of Drizzle, and a pinch of Maldon Salt.

Within this article, we will be exploring the main differences between Kalahari Desert Salt and Himalayan Pink Salt, expertly selected by Maldon and part of our Merchants Range.

We’ll first take you on a journey of understanding the two salt’s varying origins; their composition, taste and other relevant factors to help provide a clear comparison of the two.

After getting to know the history behind the salts, we then demonstrate the usage, knowing which salt is better suited for a particular dish or beverage to the other.

Once we have covered off all things cooking and seasoning, we touch upon the importance of ethical sourcing of the two salts, before letting you all know where you can purchase your very own pack of our Kalahari Desert Salt and Himalayan Pink Salt, Selected by Maldon.

Kalahari Salt vs. Himalayan Salt: Comparisons


Kalahari Salt:

Firstly, Kalahari Salt is sourced from the vast desert plains of the Kalahari Desert in South Africa, where natural salt formations occur from an underground salt deposit that has existed for millions of years. It is why Kalahari translates to the phrase ‘the land without water’, as salt lakes, like Lake Makgadikgadi, that had once existed have since dried up from continuous water evaporation, leaving a salt desert in its place.

The salt is extracted from the natural underground salt deposits, where water dissolves the salt to create a brine solution. After that, it brought to the surface and then it is then dried from the sun’s rays to leave a coarse rock salt as the finished product.

Himalayan Salt:

In contrast, Himalayan Pink Salt is sourced from the foothills of the Himalayas in Pakistan. Deposits were formed thousands of years ago when ancient seas came inland and slowly began to evaporate, leaving behind natural salt accumulations.

When continents shifted through tectonic activity, the rock that surrounded the seabed was forced to shift upward through constructive plate boundary pressures, creating a mountain range. This mountain range is now known to many as the Himalayas, where rock crystals of salt can be mined from areas close to the range to source the popular rock salt.


It is important to note that all types of salts are made of sodium chloride, with the nutrient content varying only slightly. These trace minerals are why composition may differ slightly in their structure and colourisation. Both salts are completely additive free, being of natural composition only.

Kalahari Salt:

Once extracted from the desert, the Kalahari salt holds a coarse grain size, containing many minerals and trace elements.

This is why Kalahari salt is white in colour, due to the evaporated water from the lake leaving a thin layer of trace minerals under a layer of pure white crystal salt, which is roughly 98% sodium chloride.

Himalayan Salt:

This rock salt is famous for its rosy pink hue due to the minerals within the underground salt deposits that it is mined from. Trace minerals of calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron all play a big part in the colourisation of the Himalayan salt.

Himalayan salt, like Kalahari salt, is also coarsely ground in its most unrefined form, but can be purchased in a more finely grounded version if desired.


Kalahari Salt and Himalayan Salt:

Because all types of rock salt are composed of sodium chloride as the majority element, there is very little difference in taste.

Himalayan Pink Salt tends to hold a subtle sweetness to its flavour profile due to containing trace elements of iron oxide. In comparison, Kalahari Desert has been known to have a more delicate taste due to the way it is extracted.

Kalahari Salt vs Himalayan Salt: Usage

Kalahari Salt:

Kalahari Desert Salt is ideal for boosting the flavours of meat dishes. It can be used on meat for barbecuing and grilling (think of a traditional South African Braai). It is also great when added to fish, white meat and poultry.

Not only is Kalahari Salt used for just meats, you can incorporate the salt into baking. The delicate release of the saltiness is perfect for cooking authentic breads such as mealie bread, known as mealiebrood.

Himalayan Salt:

Many use Himalayan Salt as part of the cooking process for sauces and marinades – which is why it is perfect when used in curries, dhals and other authentic South Asian dishes.

Because the salt contains a beautiful pink hue, you tend to see the salt used as a salt rim on a delicious cocktail for both vibrancy and texture as you take your first sip.

Kalahari Salt and Himalayan Salt: Ethical Factors

We ensure all our suppliers have ethical standards in place. Both our Himalayan Pink Salt and Kalahari Desert Salt producers have had multiple audits and accreditation in relation to ethical and welfare standards.

We are delighted to team up with Chef Romy Gill in cooking a delicious sea bass made with a flavour-packed spice blend using Himalayan Pink Salt, Selected by Maldon.

There is something very special about serving a whole fish at the table amongst friends and family, and this recipe will certainly not disappoint! The delicate flavour of sea bass is only elevated further through the spices that Romy infuses within the dish, where a handful of chopped walnuts is added to give an irresistible crunch to the succulent, flakiness of the cooked fish.

Why buy line-caught Cornish sea bass

Cornish sea bass is relatively low-fat fish with a great source of protein. When purchasing your sea bass for this recipe, make sure that it is line caught in local waters.

Here is how to make Romy Gill’s Cornish sea bass recipe…

Chef Romy Gill has used her inspirations as a British/Indian chef and food/travel writer to create a gorgeous sea bass dish, paired with a spice blend that incorporates Himalayan Pink Salt, carefully selected by Maldon Salt’s master salt merchants. Along with the Himalayan salt, Romy infuses the spices of cumin, fennel, coriander seeds and black peppercorns to give a warmth and smokiness to the fish.

How to make the spice blend

  1. To make the spice blend, add all of the spices together with Himalayan Pink Salt, Selected by Maldon, and blend for a few seconds until well combined.
  2. Make 6-7 good slits in the fish in order to rub the spice blend over the surface and into the flesh of the fish.
  3. Marinate the fish both sides with the spice blend, setting aside 1 teaspoon for later.
  4. Rub well, and then drizzle over olive oil and the juice of one lemon.
  5. Once the fish is evenly covered, leave in the fridge for one hour before cooking.

Cooking and dressing for the sea bass

  1. To cook the fish, pre-heat the oven to 200C and cook the fish for 15-20 minutes.
  2. While the fish is cooking, make a dressing. Chop six large cloves of garlic, then 20g of walnuts and finally a large handful of coriander.
  3. Heat a saucepan and add 2 tsp olive oil and then the chopped garlic. Add 1 tsp ghee, cook for a minute, then add the chopped walnuts, stir some more and then add the chopped coriander. Add 2 tsp of paprika and the reserved tsp of your spice blend and combine everything together well.
  4. Finally, add 1 tsp of olive oil and take off the heat.
  5. When the fish is cooked, remove from the oven and place onto plate or board. Immediately spoon the dressing all over the top of the fish and serve straight away and enjoy!

What can you serve with sea bass?

Romy created a dish of roasted stem broccoli, served on a bed of creamy feta that pairs perfectly well with sea bass. The tasty, green crunch of the stem broccoli compliments the succulent, light flakiness of the fish that makes your taste buds sing! When served with feta cheese, it will a subtle burst of creaminess and silkiness as you take your first bite.

If you are looking for a lighter option, you can serve your cooked sea bass along with a simple cucumber salad. Easy, refreshing and bursting with flavour, adding cucumber to the dish will actually help elevate the flavours of the sea bass, making a deliciously balanced dinner.

In Conversation with Jane Dunn

With a (big) slice of cake and a cup of tea, we managed to sit down with Jane and discuss all things about the release of her newest cookbook; from looking into the inspirations behind writing the book to what a normal day in the life looks like for her.

Hello Jane! BIG congratulations on the release of your THIRD book!  Tell us, what inspired you create your brand-new cookbook?

Ohhh thank you so much! I genuinely can’t believe I’m on my third book already, it feels completely surreal. I wanted to make sure with my third book that I created something that people could genuinely use every day of the week, whether that was for something sweet or savoury, and have delicious recipes to enjoy. I have always aimed my recipes at people who have absolutely no ability to cook or bake, people who have started their cooking journey, or people who are fully fledged cooks and just want something tasty… it’s a book for everyone.

The book includes 70 new fan-requested recipes! (Which are all utterly delicious!) What was the most requested recipe from your fans?

I adore putting the exclusive recipes into the book as people are so excited to make them, and I adore seeing the bakes on social media! The most highly requested book by far was the cornflake brownies, and the tiramisu… they were tied for first place and I can see that so many people have made them already!

You also feature plenty of classics within your book…come on, you must have a favourite!

Classic bakes and meals are by far the best ones out there – you cannot beat a classic such as the custard creams, party rings, school cake and so on…. I struggle to pick however as I adore them all. I reckon I would eat the jam roly poly over and over again though, with LOTS and LOTS of custard to boot. My mum and dad however are superfans of the spotted dick recipe as it’s their favourite classic.

What would be your top tips for someone wanting to get into baking?

It may sound silly, but you just want to take it slow… make sure you read through the recipe, make sure you have some weighing scales, and if you’re nervous, grab a super cheap oven thermometer and you will be fine. Baking may be like a science, but it’s really easy once you have those bits sorted… baking is like therapy for me and I adore it, it’s nice to follow a process and take your time with it rather than having to rush about and feel stressed. You can enjoy making it, decorating it, and of course eating it! Bake what you want to bake, become confident with the basics, and then have fun experimenting!

There’s a whole chapter dedicated to ‘Free-From’ – is this something that you are passionate about sharing to your readers?

Oh yes I definitely wanted to bring some baking inspiration to free-from in my third book. It’s a chapter that is designed to help inspire people who haven’t done free-from baking before, and a chapter to help you out if you suddenly have a guest with dietary requirements. There are some simple recipes in there as go-to’s as well as swaps that can be super useful in the baking and cooking world to suit gluten free and also vegan. I have many friends who have dietary requirements and I always want to be able to cater for them as well.

What does a normal day in the life look for you, Jane?

I would say my days are probably the cosiest of days, and I am super lucky. I generally wake up, grab a coffee and walk my mad dog Thor, and then we go via the shop to my studio and bake.  My studio is right next to a farm, so I usually have to drive past Lottie the donkey who I can hear throughout the day. I spend most of my time testing recipes over and over, whilst writing down my notes and editing videos whilst everything is cooling. I always have a team of trusty taste testers about to give feedback, and they are always super complimentary… it’s funny to watch people nab as much cake as they can get away with. I usually spend some time going through social media, answering any dilemmas and also interacting with my followers as I adore it, and it’s so nice to see people make my recipes and get involved. I am very lucky with what I do as it brings so many people so much joy, and I just love it myself.

Name three things in the kitchen you can’t live without!

I would have to say it’s my weighing scales, a decent spatula and my parchment paper stash. Genuinely I can’t think of how many weighing scales I have been through now after pouring liquids onto them one too many times, or simply using them too many times… they’re an absolute must. My spatulas have to have a decent 90º angle on them so they can get to every single drop of ingredients in a pan, with an ever so slight bend to use them in a bowl… I hate wasting ingredients so I am a firm believer in scraping that bowl clean with your spatula. And finally my parchment paper stash… you can’t be a baker without parchment paper in my opinion, the amount of tins I have to line on a daily basis, and it makes it so much easier!

We are delighted to team up with Magimix in creating falafel with a freshly chopped salad and creamy hummus for dipping. Using their iconic 4200XL Processor, we were able to make the falafel balls and hummus from scratch from the use of the machine’s multifunctional blades. With a simple press of a button, we are able to effortlessly multitask to create delicious tasting food!

This plant-friendly recipe is perfect for the warm summer months when you are craving something light to eat. The falafel themselves are made up of chickpeas and a handful of herbs. We also add 1 green chilli to introduce a gentle layer of spice to the balls. We pair these with an irresistibly creamy hummus for dipping the falafel in, along with a tasty chopped salad as well. The salad is packed full of veg and also has pomegranate seeds and molasses to introduce sweetness to the dish.

Here is how to make our Falafel with Chopped Salad & Hummus recipe…

  1. Start by making the falafel.
  2. Soak the chickpeas overnight, the next day drain them. Place the chickpeas in the Magimix 4200XL Food Processor along with the onion, garlic, parsley, coriander, green chilli, spices, Maldon Salt, cracked black pepper and baking powder. Pulse the mixture together until it comes together but still has a little texture – you don’t want it to be completely smooth or fine.
  3. Tip the mixture into a large bowl and cover with clingfilm. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
  4. While the falafel is chilling, make the hummus.
  5. Clean out the bowl of the Magimix. Then add the chickpeas, lemon juice, crushed garlic, Maldon Salt, tahini, cumin and smoked paprika. Blend this together until it is smooth. Add a couple of tbsp of water if needed, and the EVOO. Then blitz again until you have the desired texture. Remove from the Magimix and tip into a bowl, set aside.
  6. Make the chopped salad. In a large bowl add together all the chopped vegetables and herbs.
  7. Whisk together the pomegranate molasses, olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl and season with Maldon Salt and black pepper.
  8. When you are ready to fry the falafel, remove the mix from the fridge and then use your hands to shape into small balls, just a bit smaller than a golf ball.
  9. In a large pan, pour in enough vegetable oil so it comes up 3 inches up the side of the pan. Heat this until it reaches 180C on a thermometer.
  10. Carefully drop the falafel into the oil and fry them for 2 – 3 minutes each until deep golden brown and crispy.
  11. Remove from the heat and place onto a tray lined with kitchen paper. You can serve these straight away or keep them warm in a low oven if it takes a while to fry.
  12. To serve, toss the dressing over the chopped salad and spoon onto a big platter, garnish with the pomegranate seeds.
  13. Serve alongside the hummus and the fresh falafel. Use warmed pitta bread to pile in all three and enjoy.
