Carol Taylor read the post earlier in the week on the current research in to salt and its effect on our blood pressure. The research is looking as though we might have been maligning salt for the last 100 years and in fact our salt reduction may have had some serious side-effects. Anyway Carol had written a post on salt in Thailand which is very interesting and also shares the impact of increasing salt on her own BP.. Please head over and share from there.
Driving to Nong Khai towards the Mekong we suddenly started to see lots of roadside stalls selling salt and then I remembered nothing grew here because the land was so salty …No rice…Nothing!
Proud of their salt producing heritage there is now a 3 day Salt Festival with talks, educational displays and the most beautiful sculptures crafted from salt.

Just take 3/4 stems of lemon grass and tie in a knot, stuff it in the cavity of the fish and then roll the fish in sea salt do not descale the fish as it will…
