Description:
Salt is used basically everywhere where humans are present. Mostly in food - to enhance flavors and preserve meat and fish - but also in cosmetics and health industry. There is refined and unrefined salt. There is finely ground salt and coarsely ground salt. But rarely we think about its origin. Where does salt comes from? That's what this category is about: salt pans and salt mines.
