There have been salt pans created across Malta since the Roman times, a handy way to collect salt as the sun dries out the sea water. There are also no shortage of these on Gozo, some natural and some man-made. I was moderately surprised just how quickly the sun dries the water and how much salt is left during the process. There is still a commercial salt production site on Gozo where sea salt is farmed just as it has been for centuries.
Liam sampled the salt and apparently it tastes very salty. Which is always good to know.
