All-Purpose Umami Blend

The first salt flavor we wanted to create is this all-purpose salt, because every kitchen we’ve worked at always had their own secret A/P blend. Why do you need a trusty A/P salt you ask? Having a good A/P salt on hand makes cooking so much faster and much more convenient, since all the flavors you need will be in one container! This All-Purpose Umami Blend, as the name suggests, is meant for all your savory recipes! It will season and immediately boost the flavor of your meal, all in one jar! It's perfect for any proteins, from beef to pork, chicken to seafood, and even veggies! And with the addition of shiitake mushroom powder, this blend of salt adds tons of umami to whatever you’re cooking.

Vlasta favorite salts are my favs too

Absolutely LOVED. Had to reorder today cause I’m nearly out. So good on breads, cold salads, the options are truly endless. I smoked baby back ribs rubbed with the garlic chive and it was beyond delicious.

Super Delicious - Must Have Salts for Your Kitchen

All the Josu salts are full of flavor on their own and enhance the flavor of whatever I add them to. Soups, meats, pasta, salad, fresh sliced heirloom tomato (a fave!), I'm reaching for the Josu Salts. Highly recommend!
