Origin: Kanawha, West Virginia
Made using a unique and innovative process and completed by hand without big machinery and additives. JQ Dickinson has revived a 200 year old family tradition in Kanawha County, West Virginia. Water from the Lapetus Ocean (400-600 Million years old) located deep in an aquifer under the Appalachian Mountains is drawn up to the surface by means of a well and put into evaporation beds. As the water evaporates the salt eventually forms beautiful crystals which are hand raked and collected. In the summer, a batch takes an average of four to six weeks from start to finish. In the winter, it can take up to three months, depending on the weather.
Salt is free of contaminants and heavy metals that may be found in other oceans. It's perfect texture adds a pop of flavor and incredible mouth-feel to whatever you are cooking.
