Win A Set of 3 Wonderful Spices in Magnetic Jars from 
***Gneiss Spice Etsy Store***
I think everyone knows how much I love Etsy Stores. I am addicted to Etsy. If you have never been to their site, you have no idea what you are missing. Gneiss Spice is a specialty spice store. They have a huge variety of spices. The spice jars are magnetic! You can stick them on your fridge or any other appliance. How cute is this? 
I was sent the Smoked Salts to try:

It included three all-natural, smoky salts:

ALDER (North America)--Pacific Sea Salt is slow smoked over real alderwood, giving it an authentic, clean smoke flavor. Salish™ smoked sea salt is a 100% natural way to add authentic smoked flavor with no strange aftertaste. No liquid smoke, artificial flavors or coloring are added. Once referring to the Puget Sound, the name Salish comes from the Native American Indians- the first to inhabit the great Pacific Northwest. Red Alderwood has been used to smoke salmon and other meats for hundreds and hundreds of years, making it a true Northwest tradition. Small grain.

APPLE—A flaky sea salt that utilizes sweet Applewood to fuel the fires that flavor this naturally smoked sea salt. Aged Applewood is one of the most popular of the fruit woods used in smoking, and creates a delicious, savory flavor. Yakima Smoked Sea Salt has a subtle fruit wood flavor that is mild enough to use with fish, shellfish, and poultry. Pork, sausage, ham, and bacon are also delicious when cooked or cured with this smoked salt.

HICKORY—This salt is created when delicate Pacific sea salt flakes are naturally smoked over premium Hickory hard wood. The resulting smoke flavor is full and clean without the bitterness. No artificial flavors added. Hickory smoke is synonymous with southern cooking. Durango works magic with ribs, burgers, red meat, turkey, and chicken.

I decided to cook chicken breast using the Hickory Smoked
 Salt. When I first opened the jar, the smell of smoked hickory filled the room. 
A little bit of chicken, some black truffle oil, a dash of garlic powder, and some Hickory Smoked Salt...and voila! The Hickory was the perfect choice. It gave it such a wonderful smoky flavor that complimented the Black truffle oil perfectly.
