Organic sea salt

I\’m sorry, but this phrase just contains so much that I don\’t understand.

and on this Saturday night we are on the Anglesey side of the Menai Strait, where the waters are so pure they allow sea salt harvested here to carry the Soil Association\’s organic certification.

Organic salt? Soil Association?

What?

  1. “Organic salt?”

    If they believe that there is such a thing as inorganic food why not believe in organic salt too?

  2. Heh, heh. Organic salt was exactly what I asked for as a present two Christmases ago. 🙂

    May I use your esteemed outlet to start a meme about Goodwin’s Law of Nazi pensioners?

    STB.

  3. “If they believe that there is such a thing as inorganic food why not believe in organic salt too?”

    Because organic salt has pneuma: the spark of life, the essence of Gaia, the breath of spirit that binds us to existence in a holistic way… ommmmmm!

  4. Having done a fair bit of sailing in (and falling into) the Menai Straits in my distant youth, pure is not a word I would use to describe the water.

    Organic, definitely, but not pure…

  5. If they’re fool enough to pay through the nose for ‘organic’ salt who can cricitise them. As there is no gabelle, it is a free market if not necessarily a fully free country.

  6. Sorry but pesticides must run down the water catchement to the sea. There must be detectable (if trivial for the rest of us) levels of pesticides and other modern chemicals.

    Wouldn’t that, like, rule them out?

    Although I assume anyone could trivially prove that their ocean hadn’t been sprayed with them for the past three or five years or whatever they demand.
