Join in on the Ultimate Conversation About Salt, as I chat with the renowned salt expert, Darryl Bosshardt of Redmond Salt.

Listen in to find out:

  • What salt has in common with maple syrup. (It's not what you might think.)
  • Why the Dead Sea in Israel can't be used as food salt. (Turns out it's not sodium chloride, but mostly magnesium chloride.)
