J.Q. Dickinson Salt Works

J.Q. Dickinson Salt-Works produces brilliantly clean, artisan salt, harvested by hand.
Brine is naturally sourced from an ancient, untouched sea called the Iapetus Ocean (predating the Atlantic) trapped below the Appalachian mountains. Our salt is free of contaminants and heavy metals that may be found in other oceans.  Gleaned from the earth by an underground brine aquifer, the salt is then processed naturally using the power of the sun and gentle mountain breezes.  The result is a beautiful crystal that enhances the flavor of any dish.
