Hawaiian Alaea Salt Harvesting

Posted by Kohana on 4/10/2010 to Alaea Salt

Sea salt has been used by Hawaiians to cleanse, purify, and in blessing ceremonies for hundreds of years. It is also used in cooking to create some amazing dishes like kalua pig. It gets its distinctive color from volcanic baked red clay that enriches the salt with iron oxide.

I love this video about a local Kauai family and how they harvest alaea salt.
