Chetergovaya (black) salt - ancient recipe
This is a very old, Slavic recipe - also called 'Thursday salt' because it was traditionally made once a year, on a Thursday before Easter. Russians then continued eating this salt throughout the year for its healthful properties (the charring of the bread acts as a detoxifier, in as much the same way as activated charcoal, so fashionable these days).
So delicious too - we made our salt with Karaway's Borodinsky bread, so the salt is very aromatic because of the coriander seed present in the bread.
Sprinkle on a boiled egg, drunk your raw veggies into it or add a pinch onto a slice of bread with butter.
A little gift bag contains 50 gr of salt.
