Okinawan Sea Salt - 100g
Salt is one of the most important minerals to human life. It is also a very common ingredient. The 18 craftsmen behind this Ishigaki Sea Salt take pride in making the traditional Ishigaki Sea Salt as salt-making in the Yaeyama region began in the Kyōhō era (AD 1717).
They pump sea water from the Nago Bay at Ishigaki to ensure that this salt is 100% natural and native to the Yaeyama Region. The salt is takes 3 days to crystallise and is produced by using the 釜炊き (kettle boiling) method. This method ensures impurities like algae are filtered away during the repeating boiling process.
