Our BLACK LIME & CHILI SALT is produced in partnership with the Syracuse Salt Co., a father-daughter team who produce salt by evaporating natural brine pumped from an aquifer hundreds of feet underground. The salt is hand-blended with our black lime and three different chilis for a seasoning that is savory, tart and spicy, and it will become a staple in your kitchen!

This salt does not supply iodide, a necessary nutrient.

Slowly dehydrated salt water, then hand-blended with spices

Syracuse Salt Crystals (NaCl), Black Urfa Chili, Black Lime, Silk Chili, Cobanero Chili

David and Libby, otherwise known as the father-daughter dynamic duo making up Syracuse Salt Co.

David was born and raised in the industrial town of Syracuse, NY, which sits on the edge of Onondaga Lake. The town got the nickname the "Salt City" way back in the 18th century for the salt springs found all along the shores of the lake.

In fact, the massive salt deposit in the Salina shale formation (from 400+ million years ago!) made Syracuse the epicenter for salt production in the United States in the 1800s.

Fast forward to today. David left his job as a grounds manager for Sodexo to start a salt company. He rented a small warehouse and hired a crew to install a long pipe deep into a patch of dirt right outside the warehouse.

How deep? He'd reviewed the geological surveys for the area, but you can never be certain what you'll find until you start digging. So they started digging, crossing their fingers to hit a well of incredibly salty water before they got to the impenetrable bedrock below.

After digging 300 feet straight down, David gave the OK to stop. He tasted the water that they pumped up through a green garden hose, and his eyes lit up. They were pulling up pristine water from the shale that was 13% salt, which is 3 times the salinity of ocean water. Syracuse Salts Co. was in business.

Today, David and his daughter Libby have a small but growing salt production facility. While mineral salt is typically mined in big blocks and ground by heavy industrial machinery, Syracuse Salt Co. gently evaporates the salty water to form crunchy cubic towers. Then, the salt is scooped up, laid out on trays to dry, and carefully sifted to preserve its perfect shape and texture.

We don't have as much of their salt as we'd like, but they're working hard on expanding their facility so that this can be a regular item for us!

Game Changer

This is a game changer! I literally add it to everything and it instantly brightens the dish. It “lives” on my kitchen table now, and even my husband who is not a big salt guy has taken to using it.

Best spices, best customer service!

Our sister-in-law introduced us to Burlap & Barrel years ago and we’ve been addicted to the Urfa Chili since then and B&B is the best dealer in town! . In all seriousness, their spices are fantastic, fresh and sometime surprising in the best way possible. This last time I ordered the jug of Urfa because we go through it that fast (!), as well as two small containers of the Black Lime & Chile Salt and one of those arrived broken. As soon as I contacted them about this I received a very helpful message and a new spice jar was immediately sent to us along with some free B&B dish towels for the inconvenience! Such a nice gesture! And then they followed up to make sure everything arrived safely! Wow! Great company!

Versatile

We’ve been putting Black Lime and Chili Salt on a variety of foods, and it always elevates the dish. We enjoy it on buttered corn on the cob, on watermelon, on bean salads, on veggies, and on the rim of a jalapeño margarita. This spice is for any food that could be enhanced by the flavor of lime with a little heat.

Best Spices Ever!

I love the selection and quality at Burlap and Barrel. Such a great product, at a very reasonable price. I am over the moon with the Caramelized Onions, and the Black Lime Date Sugar. Use them all the time! Thanks for offering spices and herbs with such quality!
