Salt has been linked to civilization since the dawn of mankind. Cultures from all over the world have relied on salt in different ways, and it was the best known preservative until the invention of the refrigerator. Still, not many today know how it’s harvested.
To harvest the best salt possible, it all starts with finding the best water source available. The water is then collected during a high tide, mixed in with brine, and boiled to remove calcium, which would make the salt taste bitter. Once the boiling is complete, the calcium is taken out and the salt settles until it’s ready to be harvested. The salt then dries and is packed up to be shipped out to stores, restaurants, and other businesses in need of the product.
