A Maine Saltworks
The first solar evaporation room
Mighty steamy and hot here in the second evaporation room.
The third evaporation room where they let moisture drain out.
Smoking the salt, "it takes patience" she says
Maine Sea Salt Company
We took a diversion from our cleanup and closing up activities helping the folks close up the summer cottage for the winter for a day of driving and antiquing in the country.
We found the Maine Sea Salt company which is the first saltworks in Maine to be set up in 200 years.
I had just been reading a fascinating book on the history of salt so this was right up my alley.
You'll get a report on the wonderful finds of that day on another post.
