Salt- A Brief History


Homer, Plato, Plutarch, Pliny and Livy all wrote about it in various forms.

Life saving, literally we can't survive without salt our bodies won't function.

Preserving in more than one ways, giving us the chance to have food in the lean harsh winters...

Delicious in so many ways.

And yet not known too well, commonly misunderstood, and with many myths attached to it.

Let's explore the deep, ancient and fascinating history of salt!
