Did you know that Homer, the Greek epic poet, (not Homer Simpson) called salt a "Divine substance" and Plato, the classic Greek philosopher said salt was dear to the gods. Salt was so valued that the town of Jericho created a salt trade center over 10,000 years ago. Humans and animals would not survive without it. Salt has a fascinating history.
There is a great book out called SALT A WORLD HISTORY, by Mark Kurlansky. It is a must read for any history or cooking enthusiast!
