Russian black salt being made in the Tuscan countryside ;-) . I’ve been wanting to make the `Thursday salt´ from Beyond the North Wind by @darra.goldstein for months and finally got there today. I took the battery out of the smoke alarm and we held the smoking charred block out of the window upon taking it out of the oven. . Now onto the mortar and pestling. Looking forward to sprinkling my dinner with this stuff.
