What is Moshio?
The development of moshio, seaweed salt, has a quite of a history where it initially started during the ancient times when the Japanese were burning seaweed and using the resulting ashes as their salt. As time progressed, the salt making technique advanced to drying gathered seaweed under the sun until salt crystals formed which were rinsed off into a pool of salt water to create a concentrated brine that was then boiled down to form a crystallized salt.
