Crispy Smoked Alderwood Brussels Sprouts.   Using a hot oven and a short cooking time makes Brussels Sprouts deliciously crispy.   Cut the sprouts in half and toss in olive oil and Caravel Gourmet's Smoked Alderwood Sea Salt, then arrange in one level on a baking sheet.   Roast for 10 minutes, then shake the sheet to make sure everything’s getting roasted.   Roast for 5-10 more minutes - once they seem like they’re getting nice and brown and crispy - and serve right away.

Smoked Alderwood Steak. 
Do you know when to salt your steak? If you’re cooking tomorrow, sprinkle Caravel Gourmet's 
Smoked Alderwood Sea Salt tonight - letting the salt sit on the steak longer (up to overnight) will make the steak even better. Don’t have time? Then salt it right before you cook it (like, within 3 minutes).

Smoked Alderwood Brown or White Rice.   Adding flavored sea salt to your rice when you add the rice and the water brings out amazing flavors.   It’s simple - when you measure out your water and your rice, and start bringing the water to a boil, just add a teaspoon or two of Caravel Gourmet's   Smoked Alderwood Sea Salt to the water and stir.   That’s it - your rice will be better than you can imagine. 

Grilled Smoked Alderwood Onions.   Breaking out the grill? Make this easy side dish - grab a few large onions, slice them into 1” discs, brush on some olive oil and sprinkle them with Caravel Gourmet's   Smoked Alderwood Sea Salt before letting them slow cook on a cooler part of the grill until they’ve caramelized.   Be sure to turn them at least once.

Smoked Alderwood Roasted Potatoes.   After you’ve cut your potatoes into 1” cubes, toss them in oil and sprinkle with Caravel Gourmet's ’s Smoked Alderwood Sea Salt before roasting them at 350F for 45 minutes.
