Free Sea Salt – It’s right over there ya bone!

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.

  1. I gotta admit Biggles, whatever you did to take such a purty photo of the salt must be kept secret. I for one certainly don’t recall it being that purty in real life.
    Wait, that’s it! You killed it! Then took pics.
    That’s sick dude……
    Need more?

  2. I got a little sample bag of this salt, dried it a little further on a coffee filter, and I gotta say, it is gooooooooooooood. It’s bay water I know, but the lingering taste in my mouth was so reminiscent of surf.

  3. My scary Bolinas salt tastes fine. I just wasn’t sure if it was otherwise tainted, because it’s beige. But then I figured out that so many of the rocks on the beach at Bolinas are full of iron oxide, so my salt came out tinted (not tainted). I think. I hope. Still have some. Don’t eat it much.
