Artesian Sea Salt from Mendocino

I met Captain Bob La Mar at the San Rafael farmer's market.  Bob and his wife, Lora were looking for a way to share their love of the Northern California ocean with others.  Lora created a seasoning to give out as holiday gifts by simmering down the ocean water until it was salt.  The result was a salt with a unique taste and texture.

I'm going to experiment with some of their seasonings, especially the Sea Smoke.  It has a smokey BBQ salt smell that might be perfect for seasoning ribs.  Another possible use that might be fun is on popcorn.  I told Captain Bob there was a Pinot Noir producer called Sea Smoke in California.  Might be fun to do a Sea Smoke wine+food pairing one night.
