  1. Episode 12, the real salt. I got some Real Salt, from Redmond, Utah, and it had grit in it. I called the company, and they said that it is natural to find sand in it sometimes, and offered to replace it. I didn’t bother. I dissolved my salt in water, just enough water to dissolve it all, and poured off the brine, leaving the sand in the container. I then boiled it until i dried it out, voila!, no grit. I am going to go by the Salt Flats when I pass through Utah next, and get my own salt for free, with grit just like the Redmond product, and dissolve it to remove the sand, just like I did with their product.
