    UNITED NATION OF SALTS
    UNITED NATION OF SALTS
    A telltale sign of a well-traveled cook is a cupboard stocked with a United Nations of salts. Just as wine grapes capture flavors from the soil, the color and flavor of salt reflect the terroir of where it’s harvested. For example, a pink hue signifies the high mineral content of salt from the Himalayas.
