How to Make Salt

On one of Jackson's school days, Kathleen took us to make salt.  Okinawan salt is sought after around the world to cook with.  I just couldn't pass up the once in a lifetime opportunity to MAKE my own Okinawan salt!  We went to the Gala resort for our adventure.  It was so much fun.  Gavin didn't get to participate, but he was a great sport.  The process is in the pictures below.  Did I mention how good the salt was!  I may have to buy more.

Cooking, cooking, cooking.
The key is to stir slowly and consistently

Finally getting a little movement

Really cooking now
