  • sea salt

    does anyone know where i can buy sea salt in bulk in the uk/or online as i want to make nigellas christmas salt for some xmas pressies, many thanks

In the US Maldon salt can be bought in Whole Foods and some gourmet markets.

    Cornish sea salt is also a good-quality salt and is available in most branches of Waitrose. Larger 500g tubs can also be bought on-line at:
