I’m really enjoying Zagat’s short doc series that focuses its camera on something and examines in detail how it is made. This time they take a look at salt to find out where good salt comes from. They visited J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works in West Virginia and Jacobsen Salt in Oregon to see how two small salt shops make their salt.
It’s really quite simple (though it requires a lot of work and waiting and quality control!) take water from the ocean and let evaporation do a lot of the work with filtering, draining, and drying doing the rest.
