Maldon Garlic Sea Salt

Our Garlic Sea Salt has a wonderfully fragrant taste that is perfect for a host of recipes, such as Garlic & Tarragon Chicken, buttery new potatoes or a tear and share garlic bread.

The wild garlic blend has a distinctive flavour of garlic, being slightly lighter and less pungent in taste to garlic cloves. The addition of roasted garlic gives off a gentle sweetness and nuttier flavour to the salt.

Available to purchase on Amazon and Ocado.

Maldon Chilli Sea Salt

Our Chilli Sea Salt offers a spicy aromatic taste that is great on poached eggs and avocado, with spicy prawns or on the rim of a margarita!

Aleppo pepper, also known as halaby pepper, is made of red, mild chilli flakes with a complex flavour profile that brings a fruity, tangy and gentle level of spice to the blend. We combine the mix with bird’s eye chilli to bring both a sweetness and a gradual level of spice to make the sea salt have a fiery kick.

Maldon Salt have been proud markers and merchants of salt since 1882. Our passion to create and celebrate great taste and bringing delicious new products to the tables has driven to the launch of a new range…The Merchants Range.

Selected by Maldon’s master salt merchants, who for four generations have been making and sourcing exceptional salts and seasonings, we proudly introduce to you the first two NEW salts from this range: Himalayan Pink Salt and Kalahari Desert Salt, Selected by Maldon.

Himalayan Pink Salt, Selected by Maldon

Himalayan Pink Salt is an established trend, that until now has lacked a premium player with a quality product who are able to educate people on it’s usage.

This pink coarse rock is sourced from the foothills of the Himalayas which has been prized for centuries. It’s beautiful pink colour stems from trace elements, concentrated in certain parts of the mine. These differences allow the salt to have a range of colours, from deep to pale pink.

Notably, Himalayan Pink Salt is a quality rock salt that has versatile uses for professional chefs who are looking for special ingredients to elevate their cooking. It is also perfect for cooking authentic recipes from the region. It can be used by adding to curries and sauces whole, or can be put in your grinder for everyday use.

Kalahari Desert Salt, Selected by Maldon

Selected by our seasoned experts, this naturally coarse salt has been harvested from the vast desert plains of the Kalahari, South Africa.

Sourced from the naturally occurring underground salt lake in the desert, the salt is broken down by water, leaving an impressive brine solution that the desert’s sun dries. This leaves the salt to contain essential minerals and trace elements.

We recommend using Kalahari Desert Salt for barbecues, particularly with meat to enhance it’s flavour. You can also use it for baking breads to gradually release the saltiness.

We are delighted to team up with British Tomatoes Growers Association in support of their British Tomatoes Fortnight Campaign!

Starting from the 29th May until 11th June, the UK will be in peak season for growing the iconic tomato, which is the perfect time to celebrate this delicious crop that we all know and love in Britain.

This year, many fruit and vegetable growers across the UK are facing serious pressures of labour shortages, supply delays and significant increases in energy prices. To help support these current issues, British Tomatoes want to raise the awareness of British-grown produce and the multiple benefits it can bring to you.

Make sure to keep an eye out for their British Tomatoes Fortnight stickers in your local supermarket to support this event.

Buying British Tomatoes Holds a ‘Plate Full’ of Benefits!

Did you know the UK are HUGE fans when it comes to tomatoes, we eat around 500,000 tonnes of them each year! Let’s share with you the main reasons why buying British tomatoes is the best…

British Tomatoes and Boosting Your Health

British tomatoes are packed FULL of nutrition and hold qualities in which boost both your immunity and heart health. The British Tomato Growers Association worked with scientists at the University of Portsmouth last year are researching the health benefits consuming more tomatoes. The outcome of the research concluded that tomatoes are a ‘superhero’ for all-round health. This is because the tomatoes posses antioxidants and chemical compounds including lycopene and beta-carotene that protect you against cancers and other serious illnesses. The results also revealed that tomatoes can improve your gut health and boost exercise recovery.

Let’s Celebrate British Growers!

It’s fair to say we love our tomatoes…around a fifth of the total tomatoes consumed are grown in Britain! This is why we need to support and celebrate our British farmers in growing this delicious produce.

As discussed earlier, it’s been a challenging few years for our British fruit and vegetable growers across the UK.

Managing Director of The Green House Growers in Sussex, Mr Richard Diplock, has been farming fresh and sustainable produce since 1977. Producing tomatoes on almost 100 acres of land, the farm focuses on eco-friendly cultivations as a way to promote the best quality of crops. In doing so, their caron footprint is amongst the lowest of any produce in the UK.

With a high tech computer system in place to control the temperature, humidity and watering of their greenhouses 24 hours a day, they do not waste a drop of water, and collect rain from their greenhouse to irrigate the crops. They store this water in their very own reservoir which is home to an abundance of wildlife, including swans and ducks. What about pest control measures? Well, they use an army of predatory insect and rely heavily on bumblebees to pollinate the plants.

Diplock remarks: ‘We’re product to produce our tomatoes in an eco-friendly way and strive to develop our sustainable approach to farming each year‘. With operating for over 46 years, it is fair to say a lot has changed since the 1970s, but the farm continue to sow and grow high quality produce with a freshness that cannot be achieved from importing overseas.

Richard continues to reveal that we are ‘all guilty of not truly knowing where our food comes from‘, but promotes it’s never to late to start checking the label on produce to make sure we are buying British provenance where possible. From checking the label will already contribute to a more positive global impact in which will help ‘reducing cardon footprint and supporting the local economy’.

How to Enjoy Your British Tomatoes

Heritage tomatoes, also known as heirlooms, are a classic tomato grown in the UK. We wanted to celebrate this produce by creating a series of recipes that you can cook from the comfort of your home.

Roasted Heritage Tomatoes

Roasted Heritage Tomatoes

Let’s start off by making simple and create a delicious side dish of heritage tomatoes, roasted gently in the oven for 30 minutes. All you need is 12 – 14 British grown heritage tomatoes, olive oil, brown sugar and of course a pinch of Maldon Salt to elevate the sweetness of the toms.

Fresh Caprese Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes & Mozzarella

A classic Caprese salad made with a handful of heirloom tomatoes and torn mozzarella. British grown heirloom tomatoes are perfect for this dish as they hold a perfect balance between acidity and a gentle level of sugar content.


Mixed Tomato Salad with Smoked Sardines

Take your salad to the next level by adding sardines with your tomatoes! Perfect as a starter or as a lighter main option for the summer, this dish holds a delicate sweetness from the mix of tomatoes and the subtle saltiness from the sardines.

The Best Way is the British-Grown Way!

This March we’ve teamed up with our friends over at Pasta Evangelists to bring you an exclusive recipe from Chef Roberta!

“When it comes to pasta making, I do it like my nonna taught me: only use salt for pasta bianca (white pasta) which is made using only semolina and water. Just make sure to use warm water to melt the salt and create a silky-smooth texture for your sfoglia (pasta dough). I prefer to use natural sea salt like Maldon because it imparts such a delicious, unique flavour! Buon appetito!”

Here’s Chef Roberta’s recipe:


Strozzapreti is a hand-rolled pasta shape originating from Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany. The name of this amazing, plant-based shape literally translates as ‘priest stranglers’, harking back to the days when fat cat clergy controlled public life in the region of Emilia-Romagna, much to the chagrin of the region’s people!
