Magazine F: Salt
Salt is an essential ingredient, a compound of sodium and chlorine, has had a wide impact on society, culture, economy, and of course, people’s lifestyle. The first city ever built by Homo Sapiens was located close to the Dead Sea where high-saline water yielded salt easily. In the ancient times, people waged war against each other for salt. It also contributed to the development of traditional foods, such as jamón, tsukemono, and kimchi, used as the catalyst to preserve them for a long time. For thousands of years, salt has played a critical role in all kitchens around the world to enhance the favor, and it now stands as a symbol in itself on people’s table.
