I happen to know Monkey Wrangler ain’t the first silly ass human to make their own sea salt. Cookiecrumb of I’m Mad and I Eat did this a while back.
I wasn’t able to taste her version, but if memory serves me correctly it had an ‘off’ taste to it and was tossed after a few months. Makes sense, while California can be an amazing wild place to be, we have our own collection of polution outlets.
Blah, blah, blah and mostly, blah. Well check this out. Monkey W went out with his daughter in a little kayak adventure in Tomales Bay and grabbed 5 gallons of sea water.
I don’t know about you, but navigating a kayak is one thing, especially with a 3 year old. But if you can bring back 5 gallons of sea water, too? And not kill anyone? You sir, or madame, are a badass.
Here are the fruits of his crazy labor.
This in no way shortens what Cookie did, she took it on. But as you may or may not know, Tomales Bay is home to some of the world’s best mollusks. If it’s good enough for them, then it’s good enough for us.
Cheers to you that are crazy enough to sally forth to the great unknown.
