The word “Afrina” is the local name for what is known as Salt Nest or Fleur-de-sel. Shortly before the hops are completely dried in the Mesolongi Salt, the foal is collected. It is made of a thin crust of the first salt on the surface of the horns, which the air draws and dries. It is then collected only by hand from skilled workers with wooden tools; a very old technique that is known by those who gather it. It is the purest form of salt and has a completely different flavor of salt. Foam is more “sweet” with less intense salty taste and, for this reason, is well known and sought after by confectioners. It is the perfect condiment for raw meals and salads, while few froth crystals in grilled minutes before they are ready will take off their flavor.
