Salt is one of the oldest forms of seasoning and has been used in many cultures to preserve food for the winter months. There are two main sources for salt. Present day sea salt made by the evaporation of salt water by the sun and the wind and rock salt, pristine deposits of ancient seas preserved during episodes of mountain building. Another variant is Korean salt developed over 1,000 years ago by Korean monks and physicians. It contains essences of the five elements of traditional oriental medicine, fire, earth, metal, water and wood. Choose from these three types of salt to season your dishes and make them delicious.
