Amagansett Sea Salt: “Sea salt saved my life” was the motto Steven and Natalie Judelson envisioned when they created the Amagansett Sea Salt Co. Sadly (or perhaps gladly) there is nothing so dramatic behind their story.
Amagansett has been a major and stable part of their lives for more than 40 years now. As each season passed and they grew from kids playing in the outdoors, to young adults playing in the outdoors and in the Hampton’s nightspots, to “actual” adults still playing outdoors but now less so in the nightspots, the ocean remained a constant. As their time in the Hamptons moved from motels, to parents’ homes, to share houses, and finally to their own home, the ocean was always there.
While the ocean was never the same from day to day, it was a steady force. “When times were good, the sea was there to put us in place. When times were hard, the rolling waves were a welcome and comforting distraction.” When the Judelson’s were away from the ocean for too long, they yearned for the sound of the crashing waves and the salty taste on their lips.
So to make sure the ocean never left their side, Steven and Natalie founded Amagansett Sea Salt. And, now they are sure that their Salt, with its clean, pure “taste of the sea”, will soon become your favorite finishing salt and never leave your side either.
