About Roasted Bamboo Salt
ROASTED BAMBOO SALT
Roasted bamboo salt, a fixture in most Korean kitchens, came to prominence as a natural medicine. Rich in minerals and antioxidants, it is believed to aid in blood circulation, digestion and oral health. Master Ki creates her own version by packing winter bamboo from Damyang with hand harvested sea salt, and then roasting the shoots for 3-4 days over a pine wood fire at over 700°C. The bamboo is completely burnt off and turned into ash on the 4th day, leaving behind a salt column that is then broken up and powderized, then packaged.
