STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What is the most expensive salt in the world?
A large island of the coast of the
Danish mainland called Laeso, is where today’s most expensive salt comes from.
The island becomes extremely dry over the summer and the ground water becomes
comprised of an astonishing amount of salt. In fact, this water is approximately
fifteen percent salt. This island was extremely popular for the manufacturing of
salt in the Middle Ages. This popularity actually led to the island’s complete
deforestation, as the salt factories used a huge amount of wood in the
processing of this salt.
Today, salt operations on the island operate in
much the same way that they did one thousand years ago. Perhaps the only
difference is that this island has also become a huge tourist attraction due to
the quality of salt that is produced there. The island sees approximately 60,000
visitors in a year.
The wonderful Laeso Salt costs 150 Danish kroner
per kilogram. This is equal to approximately $29 USD. There are many other big
plans going on for the island as well. Plans are in the works to reopen the
dairy that sits on the land to begin manufacturing Laeso-salted, cheese,
sausages, and hams. There is also a small church on the island that is going to
be reopened to become a health spa. This health spa will provide people with
skin disease to come bathe in the byproducts that come with producing this
