Since there have been some very hot days, many of us have been spending time at the beach. Although it’s the ultimate spot to catch some sun, it’s also an untapped resource for tasty seasonings that you can cover your veggies and proteins in at home. DIY salt sound intimidating, but it’s actually not that difficult.
Salt has unique flavors based on where it’s harvested. From Massachusetts to Hawaii, the essence of every saltwater can be distilled into delicious salt. It’s flavored by the blend of plants, marine animals, and geology that all merge underwater. Climate and seasons can also affect the taste of different salts.
And while you might not have exotic sources near you, there’s probably some precious local or nearby oasis just waiting to be discovered.
Where do I get my seawater?
Unfortunately, not all of us live right next to an ocean, although that would be idea for more reasons that one. Find an unpolluted source of salt water. Nowhere near a sewage plant! Urban salt is not ideal.
If you do live in the city, try to take a road trip out where there are more pristine sources and clearer water. If on a beach, wade out as far as possible, so that sunscreen, sand, and other gross debris don’t turn up.
Use buckets, milk jugs, or coolers depending on the size of the batch you’re looking to make.
