Salt from Amed

Someone asked what we always buy when in Bali.

I decided to add this as a topic of it's own. So here was my reply to that question!!

"I cannot leave Bali without a large pack of salt from Amed. My kitchen is never without it.

Good oil and good salt are key ingredients to good cooking!!

You can watch the salt being harvested in Amed in ancient and traditional ways by the local people

Not only does it make my food taste better, it is also a daily reminder of life in Bali."

The sellers are quite pushy, but dont let that put you off.

There is a small exhibition about salt harvesting in Cafe Garam,[garam means salt]]

For home use you can buy the salt by the kilo... but only packed in a plastic bag

The small baskets and pouches of salt, sold in the area make a unique and useful gift.

It is also a great contribution to the local economy, which is quite poor as Ursie says.
