So in the late setting sun of a bitterly cold Vancouver day, I bravely waded out in to the freezing waters of the Pacific Ocean. I chose a spot as far away from Vancouver as possible in order to get the cleanest and greenest water and gathered up 10 litres of the pay dirt.
Then right there, before my merry little eyes, salt crystals started to form. I was so excited - I felt like a kid in 3rd grade science class.
I continued to bake it until all the water had completely evaporated and I was left with about 300g of my very own 'hand-made' sea salt. The taste? Surprisingly salty! Far more concentrated than regular salt, and it has a definite 'sea' flavour to it.
This has to be one of the most simple and yet most rewarding projects I have done in a very long time.
If you try this project, please try and collect water from as far away from the city as possible. Vancouver Harbour isn't exactly pristine - but I figured if it is clean enough for people to swim in, it is clean enough to make salt out of, plus I boiled it for long enough to kill off any nasties.
Also, this obviously isn't the most energy efficient project; sorry planet - I promise to make it up to you soon.
